Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site

222 Broad ST
Camden, SC 29020


Spend a few peaceful hours where the British spent a rough year. After the siege of Charleston, Lord Charles Cornwallis and 2,500 British soldiers marched to Camden and set up their main backcountry supply post. For the next 11 months the town was occupied. Guided and self-guided tours are available and focus on Camden's Colonial and Revolutionary eras. The 107-acre outdoor museum complex includes the 18th-century town site, 16-minute orientation film, the furnished 1785 Craven House, two restored log cabins with exhibits, partial reconstruction of British military fortifications and the reconstructed and furnished Joseph Kershaw House, headquarters for Lord Cornwallis. Some buildings handicap accessible. Historic Camden is an affiliated area of the National Park Service.
