Haddonfield's Hadrosaurus spacer Making Colonial furniture

Indian King Tavern, Haddonfield, New Jersey

Making the Tavern Restoration Possible

Volunteers, including docents who man the rooms on special occasions, are crucial to the Indian King's operation.

Over the five years of the museum's furniture-building project, the Haddonfield Lumber Company donated more than $10,000 worth of wood and other materials to the Indian King Tavern carpenters group.

The ten members of that group who made authentic reproductions of colonial furniture and hardware for the tavern are:

  • George Eckenroth, Runnemede, Cabinetmaker
  • Dave Field, Haddonfield, Chief Master Cabinetmaker
  • Hank Haynes, Cherry Hill, Cabinetmaker
  • Howard Lawrence, Cherry Hill, Cabinetmaker (deceased)
  • John Morris, Haddonfield, Cabinetmaker
  • Dennis Powell, Haddonfield, Cabinetmaker
  • Lou Semola, Haddon Heights, Brick Mason
  • Ron Snock, Westmont, Cabinetmaker
  • Chuck Taylor, Delran, Cabinetmaker
  • Charley Walker, Bellmawr, Blacksmith

Other volunteers playing a direct role in the Indian King's operations include:

  • Brad Mattson, Haddonfield, Docent Re-enactor and "Music of Christmas" Director
  • Mike Meads, Cherry Hill, Docent and Assistant-at-Large
  • Helen Peterson, Haddonfield, Chair, Acquisitions Committee, Indian King Questors
  • Tim Sibley, Haddonfield, Docent
