Historic Cold Spring Village is set up to look like a little 19th century town. You can walk from building to building and see everything from a blacksmith's shop to a pottery, bakery, etc... The highlight for my kids were the animals; Levi the horse, in particular, but feeding the goats was fun, too. They also enjoyed getting ice cream.... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the experience of visiting this village with the array of crafts people. Almost all were personal and interesting, willing to show and share their craft. It would be fun for a family, couple, friends or individuals.

A nice quiet place to visit to get a view of the history of Cape May County New Jersey. Buildings have been placed here and locals are working the crafts. You can enjoy watching the black smith, carpenter, etc. Even on a hot day stop in and have an ice cream. Well maintained land. Watch their website for special events.... More

Our family of 6 (4 kids under 12) visited for the first time and had a delightful day! The grounds were well kept and all the facilities were clean. The history we learned at each building was very interesting, and the staff were all extremely friendly and engaging! Stayed for five hours and can't wait to go back - highly,... More

This is a slow paced day where you can take in the sites, read all about the history of the buildings, the people, the trades. Take in live presentations at each building where people dress and act like the 1800's. I have to say that I was very impressed with all the effort that goes into this little community. All... More

Book binding with Trish was fantastic! I am going back for another lesson with her as well as the broom making class. So glad they are doing this new Folk School!

Cold Spring Village is a wonderful family adventure, particularly on a special events weekend. We are "regulars" and enjoy our visit to the bakery, potter, school house and country store. The kids enjoy playing the games in front of the country store. We also like the musical performances at the gazebo. A great time is always had by all.
