Camden Park housekeeper Frances Warner spoke at the September meeting or the Camden Historical Society about domestic arrangements in the Georgian mansion house.

Frances told the attentive audience that in the colonial days a lot of items for the house came out from England including furniture, books, newspapers, china and porcelain and kitchenware of all sorts. 'The blue and white Coal brookdale dinner service with the Macarthur crest was purchased by James Macarthur in 1838. This is now in a cabinet outside the main dining room. Many pieces are carefully stored and wrapped in paper. A treasure trove to be enjoyed in many years to come,' Frances said.

'The dining table can seat 14 people with comfort. The chairs are cedar and green leather. These were made for Camden Park House,' she said.
