Camden is one of three communities (with the villages of Gratis and West Elkton) that make up the Preble Shawnee School District. We are proud of our school, our board of education and the many teachers and staff that make it great.
The Town Hall was built in 1889 and was renovated and re-opened in 2017. Long a prominent building and the center of activity in town, it had been damaged extensively by a fire in 1988. The building currently houses the Village Offices, Police Department and Camden Archives. When the second phase of renovations is complete, the building will house a large banquet/activity room on the third floor which will be used for special occasions. More info about the Town Hall can be found here.
Recycling bins are available at Waterworks Park off of North Main Street.
Trash Collection is provided via contract through the Village. Contact our office for more information.
