Candlelight Walking Tour Coming Step back in time for an autumn evening celebrating South Jersey heritage. On Saturday, November 3rd, the Friends of Historic Cold Spring Village will host the annual Candlelight Walking Tour and Reception, from 5:30-7:30pm.

Luminaries will line the paths and guide you to several of the Village’s restored buildings, where wine, beer and a variety of lite fare will be served. Old-fashioned pulled pork and other popular items will be featured. Enjoy dessert and a 50% off holiday sale at the Country Store. The Village Flower Shop will also be open with unique fall displays for sale. Winona Lieux, a classical guitarist and music teacher at Lower Cape May Regional High School will entertain guests with 19th century music. In addition, the newly restored Coxe Hall Cottage, c. 1691 will be open to guests. Local restorationist Jamie Hand will give a fireside interpretation of the building, which is thought to be one of the oldest surviving structures in South Jersey. The Village was recently presented a Beautification Award in Historic Preservation from the Cape May County Chamber of Commerce for its work on Coxe Hall Cottage.

HCSV Executive Director Anne Salvatore delights in showcasing the Village at this particular event: “Experiencing the fall foliage of the Village, lit at dusk, is truly a memorable evening,” Salvatore says. “This is a tradition we hope to continue for years to come.” Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in advance; a portion of the proceeds benefits the HCSV Foundation. “This is a great opportunity to interact with members of the community,” says Sydney Perkins, HCSV Marketing and Development Coordinator. “It will be a lovely evening, and helps to support Cape May County culture and heritage.” This event will begin at the Route 9 entrance to the Village. Please call Lori Hall at (609) 898-2300, x. 10 or Peg Stein at (609) 884-5772 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 heritage tourism. The Village is a museum for all seasons. During the summer months, interpreters in period clothing discuss and demonstrate the trades, crafts and lifestyles from 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 Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and a mile and a half west of the southern terminus of the Garden State Parkway. The Old Grange Restaurant and Country Store accept Visa, Master Card, cash, and checks. For more information, call (609) 898-2300, ext. 10 or visit the Village website at
