Visit These Fascinating Ruins In New Jersey For An Adventure Into The Past

Maurice River Bluffs Nature Preserve is what I call a Jersey Gem. It’s a special, magical place that highlights the history and beauty of the Garden State. The land could have been developed for riverfront condos but, thankfully, it was purchased and preserved by The Nature Conservancy. In addition to hiking trails, this Millville preserve offers a unique variety of ruins and industrial remains.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

The 535-acre park is open daily from dawn until dusk, is dog-friendly (just keep them leashed), and operates by leave no trace principles. Take out all trash and leave the park just as you found it…if not better.
