East Jersey Old Town Village

blacksmiths at East Jersey Old Town Village

You don’t have to leave Middlesex County, to experience a taste of true colonial life! In a fully functional recreation of 18th-century living, the East Jersey Old Town Village offers visitors the chance to experience the daily life of blacksmiths, tailors, and stone carvers in the American colonies.

Guided by a team of curators and history experts, community members can explore a pre-Civil War world featuring award-winning exhibits, historic buildings, and seasonal programs.

Enjoy year-round reenactments of Revolutionary War battles, complete with muskets and cavalry; traditional holiday programs with wagon rides and cider, and (new this year) an interactive performance of “Sleepy Hollow,” during the Halloween season.
