The Camden Haven Historical Society is a community museum that researches, collects and interprets the history and heritage of the Camden Haven.
Our work explores the unique stories, character and environment of the area.
We assist people to research their family history and connections to the area and we work in partnership with cultural and community groups to create opportunities for participation and reflection on the past and the present.
