Search Camden New Jersey

The society's museum features a variety of displays that properly interpret South Jersey life in bygone days. Both farming and industry are prominent in the exhibits which also feature vignettes of various crafts, such as surveying, blacksmithing, coopering, textile spinning and harnessmaking. Also to be viewed are special exhibits on the Lenape Indians and Civil War artifacts and the cultural and religious diversity that can be found in Camden County even today. Pomona Hall, the one-time home of various members of the Cooper family, has been totally restored to its 1788 appearance and is primarily interpreted for that era. Period furnishings are displayed in each room and the house also features a fully furnished, late nineteenth century parlor. Open-hearth cooking demonstrations are held on a regular basis for visiting school groups. Call for hours of operation.
