Fodor's Review

Craftspeople in date-appropriate costumes demonstrate their trades using traditional tools, methods, and materials at this nonprofit, living-history site on 22 shady acres north of Cape May. The farming village is made up of more than 20 restored buildings originally built between 1691 and 1905, including a blacksmith shop, a bookbindery, and a schoolhouse.

Beautiful - Educational - Fun

A fun and educational place to spend time...thought we'd be there for an hour or so...the kids would be bored. Spent 5 hours, even stayed and had lunch...the interpreters are fantastic - very friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely return next year.
