Historic Cold Spring Village
Travel back in time amidst 22 acres of living history at Cold Spring Historic Village in Cape May New Jersey. Historic Cold Spring Village is an early American, open-air, living history museum that takes you back to the “age of homespun” life in the late 1700s to early 1800s. Experience the day-to-day activities of New Jersey colonists through an interactive, educational and family fun living exhibit. Gardens, farm sites, rustic buildings and quaint village lanes transport visitors to life as the colonists lived it. Historic actors are spread out in twenty-six historic buildings to educate children and families about our nation’s rich heritage. Crafts, exhibits and games have been reliving South Jersey history for 25 year in Cold Spring Village.
View the lost art of weaving in the Phillip Hand House, listen in on a lecture in the old school house, and be amazed at the difficult craft of a 19th Century blacksmith at the Finley Blacksmith Shop.
