Textiles

GH samplersHistoric textiles provide museums with a profound source of the past as our most fragile documents. Here at the Historical Society of Haddonfield, we house a broad spectrum of textiles ranging from flats to costumes. Keep in mind our mission which allows us to access items pertaining to Haddonfield, N.J. and its environs.

Among the flats collection are 18th, 19th and 20th century bed and table linens, 19th century bathing towels, jacquard coverlets, quilts from the 19th and 20th centuries and needlework including samplers.

Our impressive costume collection includes the following categories: ladies’ dresses, undergarments and accessories from the late 17th century through the mid 20th century; men’s suits, undergarments and accessories from the late 18th century through the 20th century; military uniforms; civic uniforms; infants’ and children’s clothing and accessories from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Because of a textile’s fragile nature, our collections are rotated through an exhibit schedule and are not on permanent display.
