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 period. It features 27 restored historic structures on a 30-acre site. Tuesday through Sunday, from late June to early September, historically clothed interpreters and artisans preserve the trades, crafts, and heritage of “the age of homespun.” Fun and educational activities for children are featured, with special events every weekend through September.
