Newton Meeting and the Camden County History Alliance

Over the past few years, Newton Meeting has participated in tours and open houses offered by the Camden County History Alliance. Although a small number of people visited the meetinghouse, working with the Alliance has been fruitful in multiple ways: networking, information sharing, and joint projects. The Alliance’s Fall, 2021 magazine includes an article on the history of Newton Meeting, written by meeting clerk, Cindi Kammer, and Rose Ketterer. Free copies can be obtained through participating organizations, and will be added to their website soon. Newton also received funding and technical assistance to prepare an historic sign now located at their corner of Haddon and Cooper Streets, Camden. The Alliance provided a picture of children at the Newton Friends’ school in the 1800’s, which was paired with a picture of the nearby charter school students who use the green space day.
