Camden County History Alliance Survey Report Complete

Camden County Historical Society, Camden NJ

In July 2017, the Camden County Historical Society received a grant from the New Jersey Historic Trust through the Discover NJ History License Plate Heritage Tourism Grant Program to begin work on the Camden County Heritage Tourism Plan. The work products included an online survey of the 41 Camden County History Alliance (CCHA) partner organizations, a Findings Report about the survey results, and a memorandum about the heritage trails that could link the sites and organizations together for joint marketing purposes in the future.

The online survey had 48 questions and was open from August 10, 2017 to September 1, 2017. We were delighted that 37 of the 41 CCHA partner organizations participated in the survey, a remarkable 90% response rate, indicative of the enthusiasm for public history in Camden County. The Findings Report is organized into five sections:  Executive Summary, survey overview and insights, analysis of survey questions, memo on possible heritage trails, and three appendices.

The CCHA organizations manage a total of 44 buildings in the county. These buildings vary from sheds to magnificent Federal style homes, repurposed churches, rectories, taverns, stores, a battleship, rowhomes, and farmhouses.
