  • Historic little village that shows how the people lived long ago. They have different things they do like ghost tours during the season. They also do period reenactments with everyone dressed the part. There is a cool general store with all kinds of gifts and fun things for the kids. And don't forget to go to the barn for a adult beverage .( beer)
  • This is the historical gem of both Lower Township and Cape May County. As it is educational and entertaining, there is no better place to learn about 18th century life in Cape May County!
  • Early american living history musuem! Not open in winter but can walk around and taking photos with no tourist but no activity. Normal season would be more lovely.
  • Super place to take family and even without the kids great place to stop and enjoy the newest beer stop.not bad looking bartender
  • Wow!!! This is an a credible place if you like history. It has old buildings that date back to early settlers from all over Cape May County. A lot of historical re-enactments and events. This is great fun for the whole family. There is a lot to do and it's very educational. I love it there. I'm thinking about it getting a membership.
