Historical Books for Sale

Camden historical Books 

The new “Bicentennial 1818-2018” and the “Restaurants, Hotels, Taverns and Boarding Houses of Camden” books are fresh off the printing presses and now for sale!

The  Bcentennial 1818-2018 book was researched, written and printed by our friends at the Camden Archives. and is photograph-driven, mostly color photos accompanied by researched text. It focuses on Camden’s history–particularly businesses– in the time since the Sesquicentennial Booklet was printed in 1968. The book took a lot of time and work, but was a “labor of love” for the women at the Archives.

The Restaurants, Hotels, Taverns and Boarding Houses of Camden was researched and written by Camden Archivist Janice Blevins and focuses on just what the title implies.  What a wonderful history of interesting information about Camden’s glorious past.

The cost of each book is $20, with all proceeds to benefit the Camden Archives. Both books can be purchased at the Camden Archives or the Village offices in the Town Hall and at the Camden Public Library. They will also have books for sale at Camden’s October  Black Walnut Festival.

In additional the 1968 Camden Sesquicentennial History Book (the Blue Book) is now available to download at https://preblelibrary.org/camdenarchives. Now that the Bicentennial Book is available, the Archives recently retired this book from print and made the entire 48-page book available (and can be downloaded one chapter/section at a time.) Camden is forever indebted to the compilers of the 1968 Sesquicentennial Book, Dr., H.G. Headley (Chairman), Mrs. Ruth Neff, Mrs. Jane Headley, Miss Nelle Jones, Mr. Harry Neff, Mrs. Shirley Duskey, Mr. Charles Douglas (Douglas spelled with one “s” in the book), and Mr. James Feix. (This was accomplished back in the day of typewriters and carbon paper rather than word processors and computers.)

We want to thank the ladies of the Archives for these books and all you do to preserve Camden’s rich and interesting history.
