December 2, 2019 Uncategorized Comments Off on Support the Historical Society with a Year-End Gift Today

The Historical Society of Haddonfield is proud to be participating in #GivingTuesday on December 3rd — and we are so thankful for ALL our supporters who donate time, money, and collection items to help us preserve Haddonfield’s history.

Would you consider making a special year-end gift to the Historical Society to help us continue this important work?

Your tax-deductible gift of $25, $50, $100 or more will make an immediate difference for the Historical Society’s efforts to share our community’s history with the widest possible audience, whether we’re working with local students, preserving our historic buildings, or caring for our museum and archival collections.

On #GivingTuesday, everyone who gives through our Facebook page could even have their donations matched thanks to Facebook and PayPal! (The matching opportunity begins on Tuesday December 3 at 8 am eastern time and continues until the matching funds run out; if you’d like your donations to be matched, donate at 8 am!)

You can also donate on our web site by clicking on the yellow “donate” button on the right side of this page, or mail a check to the Historical Society of Haddonfield, 343 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield, NJ 08033.

Thank you!

November 27, 2019 Uncategorized Comments Off on New “Haddonfield” Tea Towel Now Available, Plus Maps & Books

Just in time for the Historical Society’s December pop-up display about cooking and harvest time: we are selling new souvenir tea towels.

Each white cotton towel is printed with “Boro of Haddonfield,” mimicking the label on a 1907 Haddonfield map in our archival collections.

The towels cost $16 each (including tax), and can be purchased at Greenfield Hall starting this Sunday, December 1 during our open hours — 1-3 pm. After that, you can purchase towels while supplies last during Greenfield Hall’s open hours (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays from 1-4 pm), or we can ship them for an additional charge of $5 for up to two towels.

Looking for more holiday gifts? We also still have a limited run of reprints of the popular 1899 birds-eye view map of Haddonfield. The unframed map print is 20″ x 30″, and available for $50 (tax included). We are also offering framed versions of the print for $150.

The maps are available to pick up during our regular open hours, or by appointment outside of those open hours. We can ship unframed prints for an additional charge of $10. Please call or email the office to place your order today: 856-429-7375 or info@haddonfieldhistory.org.

Last but not least, don’t forget that Historical Society publications make excellent holiday gifts! You can find the full list of Historical Society publications available for sale here and either place your order online or stop by the office during our open hours.

Happy holidays!
