Historic Cold Spring Village

720 Route 9
Cape May, NJ 08204

An open air, living History Museum which takes you back to a South Jersey Farm Community of the 1800's. Nestled among 22 wooded acres with twenty-seven authentic structures, laid out to represent a small 19th century South Jersey farming village. Authentically costumed village craftspeople demonstrate age old crafts using traditional tools, methods and materials. Weekday family craft activities and horse and wagon rides, and weekend special events.

Historic Cold Spring 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. The Village is open seasonally and for special events throughout the year.

Take a stroll along our 30 acres of shaded lanes, enjoy the gardens and observe the farm where heritage crops are grown; visit twenty-seven 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.
