Step back in time for a lovely autumn evening on Saturday, Nov. 5, when the Friends of Historic Cold Spring Village host the annual Candlelight Walk from 6 to 8 p.m. Luminaries will line the paths and guide you to several of the Village’s restored historic buildings where wine, beer and a variety of light fare will be served. Guests will also enjoy desserts, live musical entertainment and hot beverages at the Village Pavilion. A special holiday sale at the Country Store will feature heritage wares, books and a wide variety of historical toys.
HCSV Executive Director Anne Salvatore delights in showcasing the Village at this particular event. “Experiencing the fall foliage of the Village, lit at dusk, makes for a truly memorable evening,” Salvatore said. Tickets are $30 ($25 for HCSV members) and must be purchased in advance. Please call (609) 898-2300 ext. 10, or visit www.hcsv.org/candlelight to purchase tickets.
Historic Cold Spring Village is a non-profit, open air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community of the Early American era. Its mission includes the preservation of 27 historic Cape May County buildings, history education and promoting heritage tourism. The Village is a museum for all seasons. During the summer months, interpreters and artisans in period clothing preserve the trades, crafts and heritage of “the age of homespun.” From October to May, the emphasis is on teaching history through school trips to the Village, classroom visits by the education department and interactive teleconferences with schools throughout the United States. The Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and a mile and a half west of the southern end of the Garden State Parkway.
