Camden landmark is being demolished, but a historical society is trying to save part

CAMDEN – A demolition project is turning a downtown landmark into rubble, but not all of the structure is doomed.

The Camden County Historical Society has acted to preserve two massive county seals that adorned exterior walls at the Aletha R. Wright Administration Building.

A large mural painted on a brick wall of the county-owned building could not be saved. But the Society had the artwork photographed, allowing production of copies that will be displayed elsewhere as a remnant of the city’s history.

The salvage work was “part of our effort to collect Camden County history when a building cannot be saved,” said Jack O’Byrne, the historical group’s executive director.
