It was nice, small, clean, run well. It was hot, especially for September. There was always a line, a lot of people wanting to get in a small space. I heard it was at max capacity. All in all it was nice.

Whenever people ask me what to do in Cape May, my first recommendation is "COLD SPRING VILLAGE". Growing up, it was always a special place to see interesting clothes, pottery, animals and crafts, and it remains that to me as I fly through my 20s. For those who don't know, the village is a collection of historic buildings lovingly restored... More

My husband and I decided to give this a chance and it was adorable. It really took me back to a different time. We went on a weekend they have a Civil War reenactment and every one was really in character. It's nice for kids to see as well.

Visited HCSV on a trip to Cape May. Can highly recommend it, if you want to get away from the beach for a moment. It's worth your while. Great houses and shops from a time gone by. All the people there do take time and explain their trades. Very educational, even for grown ups.The weekend I was there, there were... More

I love historical recreations like this one. All of the re-enactors were very knowledgeable about their trade and the entire staff was extraordinarily courteous. I thought we'd simply pop in for about an hour and leave, but we spent a solid 3 hours there and still didn't see everything. There's no guided tour or specific path to follow, meaning you... More

We visited when they had a Revolutionare War reinactment. Stroll the shady streets to visit different homes and shops of the 1800's. My favorites were Ben Franklin who stayed in character. I also liked the school master. He really showed the kids what it was like to be a student back then. Lunch can be purchased at the bakery, a... More

This quiet village takes you back to a simpler time before all the electronic and when people work hard. Each house teaches a lesson (black smith, basket weaving, tin shop, wood working and printing. They have special events and have hands on week-ends for the children. My grand children would go every week end if they could. They have made... More

Authentic New Jersey historic village. Take your time strolling along the shady paths and make sure you don't rush through the buildings without talking to the knowledgeable and friendly staff. Many of the Country Store's handmade crafts are made on site by the village craftspeople.
