Did you ever wonder how old is your house?  I had a patron come in who had just moved here from another state and bought an old house.

It was a two-story house in Camden that was rumored to have been a stop for the underground railroad.

They wanted to know the story behind it.

They researched it with our help. They looked at deeds, probates, photographs, and orphan’s court records to name a few, and realized it was just a rumor.
