I have not been to Cold Spring Village for many years. I visited this past Saturday while they were holding their paranormal events. I have to say, I was quite impressed. The grounds were clean and the ghost walk was very interesting. The storyteller for our walk was very informative. I will not hesitate to attend another event at Cold... More

Loved the way you wander in to the different houses and get to see hands on demonstrations from the 1800s -- printshop, woodworker, potter, blacksmith, basket weaver, schoolhouse, tavern, etc. We learned a lot. Also a nice bakery and homemade ice cream shop. We got to play games kids played... More

If you like to learn about local history this is a great place to visit. There is a charge to enter but it helps to keep our knowledge of the past alive. Without the past we can't go forward. You get to learn about how people lived, how things were made, the buildings are originals (of course with repairs to... More

We enjoying going here withe the grand children, it shows them how things used to be and how hard it was before electronics. We like the hands on weekends but do not like that they have changed the way you can do things. The change makes it so that you need to spend the day there, you can only do... More

Very impressed with the knowledge of the people working in this historic village. You can tell they care deeply and are very invested. You are able to get up very close and even use some of the historical items in the buildings. Quite a few items in the country store were actually made on site by the staff. Great place... More

A really nice historic village. Very well done with all the demonstrations of how things were done in a bygone era. A relaxing place where all the people were friendly and informative.

We love Historic Cold Spring Village. Our grandchildren enjoy going and participating in the activities. The school house is one of their favorites, after the ice cream parlor! They have great events that give us a fun glimpse of history.

This was our first visit here. The staff was friendly and educational. However this didn't hold our sons interest. He was already in a terrible mood but I still think it would have been difficult to get his interest. I do think it is an interesting place just wasn't our cup of tea.
