Living history for 30 years! The Village brings to life the day-to-day activities of villagers living in South Jersey during the “age of homespun.”

Visitors can make a personal connection between the past and present through the interactive, educational, and hands-on family activities. Take a stroll along our 30 acres of shaded lanes, enjoy the gardens and observe the farm where heritage crops are grown; step back in time to the 1800s while visiting an award-winning 30 acre-site. Visit twenty-six restored historic buildings housing historically-clothed interpreters, who educate and entertain visitors about the lifestyles, issues, trades and crafts of yesteryear including blacksmithing, woodworking, basketweaving and more. 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, horse and wagon rides and playing games.
