Overview
More
Historic Cold Spring Village (HCSV) is a open air living history museum that invites all visitors to find meaning, pleasure, relevance, and inspiration in the exploration of southern New Jersey's past. It is a nonprofit, educational museum that is open during the spring-summer season. The centerpiece of the museum is a re-created rural Southern New Jersey town of the "home spun era" set on more than 30 acres. The Village will open for the 2018 season June 23rd. We will kick off our special weekend events on June 16th!

Pastoral relaxed setting for those infatuated by history and nostalgia. Educational and at the same time downright enjoyable. As such, appeals to all ages. A great family time.

Had gone there many years ago when our kids were small. Went on a recent trip, during a Revolutionary War reenactment weekend. We sat through a great hour-long presentation on the history of US Flags.Would recommend if you like this sort of thing.
