New Jersey has an abundance of history. If you’re most fascinated with the past few centuries, there are plenty of places you can go to explore. From Batsto Village to the Princeton Battlefield, Revolutionary War cemeteries to mill ruins, the Garden State has got you covered. But what if you’re most interested in ancient history? Paleontology, perhaps? You can visit the Hadrosaurus discover site in Haddonfield, which many of us are familiar with, but there is another place…

Did you know this site even existed? If you’re looking for a spot to collect fossils in New Jersey, we’ve got you covered! With proper tools (or simply a strainer) you may be able to find (and take home) fossils from this beautiful brook. You can also dig for minerals at the Sterling Hill Mining Museum, one of my favorite New Jersey attractions.
