Mission Statement

Historic Cold Spring Village is a non-profit educational institution established as an Early American open-air living history museum. Its purpose is three-fold: historic preservation, history education and heritage tourism. This is accomplished by promoting New Jersey history through extensive programs utilizing the architecture, lifestyles, arts, history and culture found in a rural South Jersey village during the early to mid-19th century. The Village endeavors to provide visitors with an understanding of their cultural heritage through a personal encounter with the past.
