Camden to dedicate historical marker

The Village of Camden and the Camden Archives invites the public to its Ohio Historical Marker Dedication Ceremony honoring Old Camden Orchard Hill Cemetery at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 11. This historical cemetery, where early Camden area settlers and veterans from four wars are buried, was abandoned for over 130 years.

Now restored, the Cemetery has been deemed worthy of an Ohio Historical Marker. Several speakers will address the audience during the Marker unveiling ceremony. Covered seating will be provided.

Due to road construction on S.R. 725 West and unavailability of parking at the cemetery, guests are encouraged to park at the First Southern Baptist Church parking lots on North Liberty Street and West Central Avenue and ride the shuttle to the cemetery. Shuttle service will begin at 1:30 pm. For additional information, contact Janice Blevins at 937-689-0109 or Cherry Anderson at 937-974-5523.
