A local told us about this place. We're thinking...how can there be anywhere deserted in the middle of New Jersey and right off I-78?
Well lo and behold there is a deserted village with houses built in the 1800's. It served as a mill town built by David Felt. The buildings include a church/store, a cemetery, several houses and a mill site. The buildings are frail and access inside them is not permitted. There is a walk to all of these structures which is about a mile. It is billed as deserted but a couple of the houses were inhabited and we did notice fire hydrants and electricity lines. Nevertheless it is interesting to see and there are walking trails and a picnic area. It is very quiet and peaceful in the middle of suburbia.
There is a parking lot at the top Cataract Hollow Rd and it is an easy walk to the village. There are pamphlets available showing the walking route and also a pamphlet depicting the wildlife.
There are bathrooms in the Church/Store house and per the pamphlet his structure is available for parties.
