Historic Cold Spring Village is a non-profit, open air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community of the Early American era. Its mission includes the preservation of 26 historic Cape May County buildings, history education and promoting heritage tourism.  The Village is a museum for all seasons. During the summer months, interpreters and artisans in period clothing preserve the trades, crafts and heritage of “the age of homespun.” From October to May, the emphasis is on teaching history through school trips to the Village, classroom visits by the education department and interactive teleconferences with schools throughout the United States. The Country Store is open Saturdays, 11am-3pm, throughout the fall for holiday shopping. The Cold Spring Grange Restaurant is currently serving lunch and dinner Saturdayand Sunday. The Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and a mile and a half west of the southern end of the Garden State Parkway.  For more information, call (609) 898-2300, ext. 10 or visit the Village website atwww.hcsv.org.
