With 400 years of history under its belt, it's no wonder this small-town charmer is listed on the National Register of Historic Places with its six historic districts right in the middle of downtown.

Additional attractions in the community include a state-of-the-art hospital, three colleges within the region, and a strong military presence.

As the eldest manmade waterway in the United States, the Great Dismal Swamp is a key landmark of Camden with its listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, the Great Dismal Swamp is part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, which provides residents easy access to other places along the route.
