Established in 1968. Purchased in 1944 as a place for a summer home, Harvey and Bernice Jones never expected to build an antique village. It was established in 1968 when Harvey built Bernice a church on the banks of the lake from bricks handmade before the civil war. Bernice named the Village by using the first three letters of each of their first names. Numerous buildings were added as the Joneses needed places to display the antiques and collectibles they gathered over the years. 98% of the items in Har-ber Village were purchased by the Joneses and the rest was donated. Har-Ber Village Museum's Mission is to collect and preserve historical items, authentic to the American experience, for the whole family to enjoy and understand within a scenic and inspirational setting.

Great day of fun. We attended during Interactive Family Day. Many stations to watch and interact through the village. Definitely coming back.
As a child we went to Harbor Village many many times!!! Some really great memories made there!!! Definitely worth checking it out if you're in the area!! Taking my kids this fall for some new memories...
Loved it!! Planning on spending my 35th birthday w my husband and son there.
Well worth the time and money. Something for everyone, from Chapel, to bank, to dentist office, to a bar and fine china, and antique furniture. Don't miss it when you are in the area.
Went there all the time as a kid and loved every minute of it! Even the time i accidentally knocked my self out.
