There are two famous artifacts related to the city of Camden , Camark pottery and Grapette soft drinks, which are exhibited at the Camden Visitors Center and Museum. Most of Camden's families came from Virginia, the Carolinas, Alabama, Georgia or Tennessee. There are many places in the city where you can walk down the corridors of yesterday. Much of Camden's history has been preserved, and many of the antebellum homes have been restored.

Tourists find many reasons to flock to Camden, starting with our unique festivals like the BPW Barn Sale in the autumn and Daffodil Festival in the spring. Visitors also like to take advantage of the abundant wildlife and fishing opportunities found in this part of the state. No one should miss visiting the McCollum-Chidester House or the drive-by tour of the more than 20 historic homes and numerous landmarks that grace the community.
