A Historical Society volunteer talks about Haddonfield history with visiting second graders.

For the fourth year in a row, the Historical Society of Haddonfield has been awarded a general operating support grant from the Camden County Cultural and Heritage Commission at Camden County College. The Commission is the officially designated county history agency of the New Jersey Historical Commission.

“We are so grateful to the Commission for its ongoing support,” said Doug Rauschenberger, President of the Historical Society. “Awards like this one help us continue to care for our important collections, deepen and expand our partnerships with local schools, and share Haddonfield’s history widely.”

The Camden County Cultural and Heritage Commission was founded in 1972, and recognizes the role of arts and local history in making our communities dynamic places to live and work.

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!
