Hands-on Learning

Field Trip Program– While visiting a selection of historic buildings students will gain first-hand exposure to life as it was for our ancestors of the early 19th century. Included in their visit, students will meet with a blacksmith, potter, basketweaver, school teacher as well as visit the woodshop, Country Store and Ice Cream Parlor. The Village is open exclusively for school groups, May-June.  The cost is $10 per person for Cape May County schools, $12 per person for schools from outside the county. One teacher or chaperone is admitted free for every 10 students.

In-Class Presentations– The Village offers in-class school visits free of charge to all Cape May County Schools. An HCSV staff member visits your classroom with one of the following presentations: The Story of Old Glory, An Early American School Day and Four Great Inventions.

The Marshallville One-Room Schoolhouse Experience– The c. 1850 Marshallville Schoolhouse is available free of charge for teachers who wish to personally recreate a “School Day of the Past” for their students. An HCSV staff member can present the program for a fee.
