Today, Dec, 19 I took my granddaughter to Historic Cold Spring Village. We decorated gingerbread cookies, had hot chocolate and colored paper gingerbread men, wrote a letter to Santa and had a wonderful afternoon. Father Christmas was there dressed in a beautiful outfit. All of this NO CHARGE. For a small fee we rode in a carriage pulled by the... More

Nice place to visit. and spend a few hours. actors working the various shops and they take the time to explain what life was like back then. Kids loved the one room school house.

We were visiting from California and the Fall Festival met my needs for pumpkins, fall carnival food, flea markets, and quaintness. The only negative is that none of the buildings were open. I looked forward to seeing craft displays.

Great way to spend a day off the beach. The village is a living museum of day to day life in southern NJ in the 1800s. Interesting facts for each "store" and the host/hostess in each building is very knowledge. The general store is also worth the visit. The Grange Restaurant offers a variety of farm to table and comfort... More

We stopped by here on Friday and although Cold Spring was open nothing within it was. Buildings were locked and no activities going on. We were the only ones there but did enjoy walking around and just enjoying the peaceful scenery. If you go in the fall be sure to check the schedule as I believe we realized later on... More

We decided to go to Cold Spring because it was a free admission day. Having been here years ago, I knew the price was quite costly for a short walk through a historic area with very few attractions. The General Store is about as exciting as it gets. Might attract great history buffs for that area, but this event was... More

Always a nice experience for the family, I would recommend taking the time to visit all thee buildings and finding a person to explain the significance of that particular building and it's purpose.

I'm glad I went on a day that had free admission. Said it was a County Fair. It was a poor turnout as far as vendors and community partners.

We timed our visit to coincide with the annual Civil War Encampment and it was a nice visit. It was cool to see all the Civil War folks camping out and they did a good job of being authentic. We went around to all the buildings and there were people in most buildings to describe what went on there. We... More

Have a few hours and looking for an interesting change up while at the beach checkout Cold Spring. Some really neat event weekends like Civil War reenactments and an interesting collection of 1800 era shops make this a great side trip while at the beach.
