Historic Cold Spring Village Announces New Website Launch

Historic Cold Spring Village is pleased to announce the launch of a new website, hcsv.org. in partnership with Princeton Strategic Communications.  The site has a clean, uncluttered design; improved functionality; and enhanced rich content, which focus on the museum’s mission of historic preservation, history education and heritage tourism. Features include an Interactive folk art map by local artist Ed Ayers, a new Village logo, numerous new photos and an outstanding video produced by Frank Weiss of PSC.

The rebranding and website redesign project was funded with a grant from the New Jersey Cultural Trust Institutional and Financial Stabilization Grant Program for History and Humanities Organizations. The grant program is designed to help non-profit groups build operational capacity and achieve their missions.

Carolinn Woody Poacher, a member of the marketing firm’s creative team states “my family has a long history with the Village, so as a member of the younger generation, it was especially satisfying to collaborate with HCSV’s creative team. Helping them succeed in the digital space with a new responsive website will keep them top of mind with visitors, as well as donors and sponsors. The Village is one of New Jersey’s treasures, and we want to see it thrive for years to come.”

Historic Cold Spring Village is a non-profit, open-air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community from the Early American period. It features 27 restored historic structures on a 30-acre site. Admission during the season is $12 for adults and $10 for children ages 3 to 12. Children under 3 are admitted free. Unlimited free admission is available with Village membership. For more information on events, membership, volunteering, or booking private affairs, please call (609) 898-2300, or visit the Village website at www.hcsv.org.
