Overview
More
Historic Cold Spring Village (HCSV) is a open air living history museum that invites all visitors to find meaning, pleasure, relevance, and inspiration in the exploration of southern New Jersey's past. It is a nonprofit, educational museum that is open during the spring-summer season. The centerpiece of the museum is a re-created rural Southern New Jersey town of the "home spun era" set on more than 30 acres. The Village will open for the 2017 season June 27th. We will kick off our special weekend events on June 17th!

We didn't expect this sort of attraction in Cape May, NJ. It's similar to Collonial Williamsburg with many period houses and people dressed in period garb. There were several interactive areas, where the kids can actually participate in things like preparing corm meal, and juice...More
