“this hictoric attraction deserves much more respect”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I am sad to see this wonderful historic attraction struggling just to survive. Imagine a mini Williamsburg. but FREE. free to park free to enter and all the attractions are free. I had a few great hours of fun watching listening and learning how things were done 150 years ago before the advent of electricity. The church group even sold food at insanely low prices. Sadly, they might get more visitors if they did charge more.

“No Food lots of history!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

A very old village on the original site [ a rarity ] . This is a great place to relive history without the hype of say Sturbridge Village , though much smaller it covers most small villages of early America very completely.

“Interesting little gem of history”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

Spend a couple of hours ampling around this recreated town. Not much to do, unless you are into history, especially NJ dutch history, but it's free, and a nice walk-around.

“Nice amalgamation of nature and history”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Parts of the village are reconstructed structures relocated for nearby sites. But the Millbrook village did exist and some of the buildings of the original village still exist. Some of these are open to the public on weekends between Memorial and Labor Day - with volunteers in period costumes. If you are more interested in the fauna then each season would offer its own collection of birds and mammals. I visited the site as part of the "Great Places at the Gap" trail prescribed at njwildlifetrails.org and it was a great way to end the day's drive. I found the place neat, quiet and clean. You may want to read up a bit about the site before you go there. There are maps with descriptions of the building available as PDF downloads that you can printout before you go. The parking lot in not large but it is unlikely that there would be a large crowd.

To walk paths and watch the building of post and beam structures is amazing.
