Step back in time for a lovely autumn evening on Sat., Nov. 3 when the Friends of Historic Cold Spring Village will host the annual Candlelight Walk from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Luminaries will line the paths and guide you to several of the Village’s restored historic buildings where wine, beer and a variety of light fare will be served.
HCSV Education Director Jim Stephens will present demonstrations and an interpretation of Coxe Hall Cottage, c. 1691, the Village’s oldest building. Enjoy fireside desserts, live musical entertainment and hot beverages at the Village Pavilion. A special holiday sale at the Country Store will feature heritage wares and a wide variety of historical toys.
HCSV Executive Director Anne Salvatore delights in showcasing the Village at this particular event. “Experiencing the fall foliage of the Village, lit at dusk, makes for a truly memorable evening,” Salvatore said.
Tickets are $25 and must be purchased in advance; a portion of the proceeds benefits the HCSV Education Fund. The event will begin at the Route 9 entrance to the Village. Please contact Lori Hall at (609) 898-2300, ext. 10 for more information on this event or to purchase tickets.
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 Oct. 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.
Admission during the season is $10 for adults and $8 for children ages 3 to 12. Children under 3 are admitted free.
The Country Store is open weekends throughout the fall for holiday shopping. The Village Nature Trail at Bradner’s Run is open to the public for free self-guided tours.
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.
