King Haiglar Opera House Tower

The Clock Tower, corner of Broad and Rutledge, Camden, SC

A noble Catawba Indian Chief who befriended early Camden settlers, King Haiglar is often called "The Patron Saint of Camden". Today he reigns over Camden in the form of two life-sized weather vanes, which grace the circa 1886 Opera House Tower at 950 Broad Street and the dome of Camden City Hall at 1000 Lyttleton Street.  The weather vanes are replicas of the original King Hagler weather vane given to the city in 1826, now protected from the elements inside the Camden Archives and Museum.  Located just a short distance away on Town Green Park, is a statue of King Haiglar and Joseph Kershaw, Camden's Patron Saint and the Father of Camden together forever!
