The Camden County History Alliance was established in February 2016. It is an association of almost 50 Camden County history organizations, historic assets, and support agencies. It was created to identify resources, increase the number of visitors, and institute projects that promote Camden County heritage.
For more information, please visit the Camden County History Alliance on Facebook.
The Camden County History Alliance publishes the Camden County Heritage magazine each spring and fall, with each edition featuring a different theme relating to Camden County's history. We appreciate the support of our advertisers and patrons whose contributions make it possible to distribute 10,000 copies free to the public throughout the county.

Camden County History Month was held in October 2019. It was a full month of history events, featuring exhibits, guided tours, reenactments and children's activities held at over 30 historic sites throughout Camden County!

The Camden County Heritage Trails Map & Guide links our historic sites & history organizations to seven Heritage Trails:
Built in Camden County; 20th Century Stories; African American Heritage; Women in History; Many Faces of Camden County; Colonial Times; and Rivers, Roads & Rails. Events during the year highlight each of these Heritage Trails.

In 2017, the Camden County History Alliance completed the Camden County History Alliance Survey funded by the New Jersey Historic Trust, through a state grant from the Discover New Jersey History License Plate Fund for Heritage Tourism.
The Camden County Heritage Tourism Plan was supported by the New Jersey Historic Trust from 2017 to 2018 through three (3) grants awarded to the Camden County Historical Society, the coordinator of the Camden County History Alliance.
