In 1857 the Raleigh & Augusta Railroad came to Cameron and was the end of the line for a while. The town was incorporated in 1876 and named for Paul Cameron, a railroad official. From 1880 to 1890, the Cameron-based, Muse Brothers Store was known as the largest department store between Richmond and Augusta.

The introduction of the Lucretia Dewberry (a mild blackberry) in 1892 made Cameron the, Dewberry Capital of the World.” You can still find Dewberry jam and desserts in the local shops.

Today Cameron is well known for its antique shops and on the first Saturday in May and October, an antiques fair is held and attended by thousands of visitors. The quiet residential town rises to the occasion with lots of antiques and treasures for every kind of collector.
