With the longleaf population on the decline, we are working to remove some of the non-longleaf trees and overgrowth from the battlefield property and plant longleaf pines in hopes of providing the dwindling species with a better chance of recovering.
Battlefield Pines Now vs Then
Historic Camden is gladly working to bring our new Artisan Market to life. Visitors will find a variety of items ranging from baskets and soaps to fresh produce straight from our farm. Check back with us regularly for updates!
What are Longleaf Pines
The Longleaf Pine is native to the Southeastern United States and is one of the most common trees found in South Carolina. Growing to heights between 90 and 115 feet and over 2 feet in diameter, these trees are characterized by their long needles and spiny cones.
Why Preserve Them
We have two gift shop locations. Items found in our gift shops include books, apparel, children’s toys, and magnets, just to name a few. Each shop also offers a variety of artisan items, such as candles, pottery, artwork, jewelry, and much more.
The Historic Camden Foundation is not state or federally funded so we relay on individual donations. Even a small donation truly helps. So please send a gift and make a difference!
