Camden County History Month Tours
For Camden County History Month, the Walt Whitman House Historic Site, home of the “Good Gray Poet” will be hosting special “Walt Whitman’s Camden” tours that focus on the work that Whitman created while living in Camden, as well as the history of Camden in relation to the historic site. The tours will explore his diary jottings in Specimen Days and his ruminations on the growth of America in Democratic Vistas. The compilation volume Specimen Days and Collect was assembled during Whitman’s time in Camden and illustrates his experiences and opinions of his life’s work as well as his thoughts on and travels throughout Camden County. These special tours at 11 am and 2pm are on a first-come, first-served basis on Fridays and Saturdays in October.
