Just a reminder that the Historical Society will not be offering tours or other programs during the month of August while we’re closed for our annual summer break. We will return to regular public hours after Labor Day.

Our last summer hours for Greenfield Hall will be Wednesday July 31 from 1-4 pm, and our last research hours at the archives center in the Mickle House will be Wednesday July 31 from 9:30-11:30 am.

If you miss us in July, you can still reach out by phone or email, but please be patient if we are slower to respond. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Volunteer Docents Needed for Spring School Tours

March 19, 2019 tours Comments Off on Volunteer Docents Needed for Spring School Tours

With springtime upon us, it’s time to start planning for our annual school tours for Haddonfield elementary school students.

We’d love your help either as a lead docent or a helper — all training will be provided! Volunteers should be willing to commit to at least two school tours of Greenfield Hall on weekday mornings in April or May.

We’ll be holding a meeting for new and returning docents at Greenfield Hall on Friday March 22 at 1 pm. Please RSVP to Marsha Marshall at info@haddonfieldhistory.org or by calling the Historical Society at 856-429-7375.

Of course, if you’re interested in volunteering but can’t attend training on the 22nd, please let us know that too. Questions? Contact the Historical Society at 856-429-7375.

May 30, 2018 Events, tours Comments Off on Last Chance for Tickets to Colonial Haddonfield Walking Tour

Only a few more days to get your tickets for the Society’s new Colonial Haddonfield walking tour to be held Saturday June 2 from 10 am to 12 noon — just before the Indian King’s annual “Skirmish on the Highway.”

Tickets are only $25 per person, and space is limited to no more than 40 participants (in two groups of 20).

The walking tour will be led by Joe Haro, who has for many years led architectural walking tours in Philadelphia and Haddonfield, and Co-Borough Historian Kathy Tassini. The tour will depart from Greenfield Hall, 343 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield, and continue to Haddon Avenue and back. Participants will have a chance to view the inside of the Guard House / Timothy Matlack house on Kings Highway, opposite the Indian King Tavern. Light refreshments will be available at Greenfield Hall after the tour.

All proceeds to benefit the Historical Society. Contact the office at 856-429-7375 or by email at info@haddonfieldhistory.org to get your tickets today.

Haunted Mansion Planned for Monday October 30

October 2, 2017 Events, tours Comments Off on Haunted Mansion Planned for Monday October 30

The Historical Society of Haddonfield’s annual Haunted Mansion at Greenfield Hall will be held on October 30 right after the town Halloween parade, approximately at 7 pm and continuing to 9 pm.

The cost is $3 for kids and $5 for adults, and tickets will be sold at the door.

For those who haven’t visited the Haunted Mansion before, we aim to make this event appropriate for elementary school aged kids, roughly second to fifth grades. We add seasonal decorations to the first floor of Greenfield Hall and offer lights-out spooky tours. Light refreshments are served in the back garden.

This year, we’ll also be offering spooky story time in the back garden for younger visitors who aren’t sure about taking the inside tour.

This year’s event is sponsored by Lisa Wolschina and Associates from Keller Williams Realty and Jason Barnes from Citizens Bank.
