These 17 Historic Villages In New Jersey Will Transport You Into A Different Time

As one of the first states in America (New Jersey was the 3rd state to ratify the Constitution), we have a LOT of history. Our past is an important part of our present, and we don’t want to forget it. We’re very lucky to have historic sites and villages that help to preserve our heritage for future generations. You can find these gems scattered throughout New Jersey; here are a few that will immerse you in the past. Please note that I’ve focused more on organized historic attractions than towns with historic merit like Princeton or Ringwood.

Have you been to any of these historic villages? Which was your favorite? Are there any others I forgot? Let me know in the comments, I love keeping New Jersey’s history alive!
