Also called the Deserted Village although people still live in it! A collection of houses and other buildings that used to be a mill town, then a resort area. Remarkably accessible for being in the middle of the woods- road into village is well paved,...More

A run through Feltville is a run through history. Park at Cataract and either walk or run down the street to see the historic places.

The walks throughout the Deserted Village are historically interesting and have diverse settings. There is an archeology area, paths in the woods, buildings to tour. The hill back to parking is steep so it is not for the weak.
