Year Round

The 1800s come to life at NJ's largest open-air living history museum! The Village brings to life the day-to-day activities of villagers living in South Jersey during the “age of homespun” (1789-1840). Visitors can make a personal connection between the past and present through the interactive, educational and hands-on family activities. Take a stroll along 30 acres of shaded lanes; enjoy the gardens and observe the farm where heritage crops are grown; visit 26 restored historic buildings housing historically-clothed interpreters who educate and entertain visitors about the lifestyles, issues, trades and crafts of yesteryear. Children enjoy playing at the activity area where they take part in a variety of projects such as trying on costumes, participating in hands-on crafts and playing games. Items created by the artisans working at the Village may be purchased in the Village Country Store. Also visit the Country Store for sweets and treats, homemade jams and jellies, wooden toys and more!
