Carriage House Museum
Founded in 1970 by the Queen Village Historical Society, the museum houses information and artifacts directly related to the history of Camden: its citizens, government, transportation, industry, business, church and social affairs, educational institutes and cultural activities. A recent addition to the museum is the Dibbletown Schoolhouse, the re-creation of a local one-room schoolhouse.
