Camden Archives & Museum in Camden, SC, Focused on the Work of Robert Mills

The Camden Archives & Museum in Camden, SC, is presenting Robert Mills’ South Carolina, showcasing highlights of “South Carolina’s Architect”, on view through June 20, 2014.

The exhibit, features a range of works from the man who is considered “South Carolina’s Architect,” including multiple versions of the Mills Atlas of the State of South Carolina, a collection of charts and maps produced from 1825 to 1980. The atlas is still considered a go-to piece of cartology and research material for historians and genealogists alike.

The discovery of an 1838 edition of the atlas prompted staffers to develop a feature exhibit on Mills, who once wrote that Camden was one of the most prominent sites of his architectural career. His work in Camden includes the Historic Robert Mills Courthouse, Bethesda Presbyterian Church and the DeKalb Monument.

Camden is a small town of approximately 7,103 residents and is located 30 miles northeast of Columbia, SC. Camden families and residents enjoy a top notch school system, beautiful local parks and green spaces, as well as community activities and local events throughout the year.
