First Event of 2014 Season - Spring Fling - Sat. May 24 - 10AM to 4 PM

 

Welcome to the homepage of the Millbrook Village Society.
For those of you who aren't aware of us or what we do, Millbrook Village is located in the Delaware Water Gap NRA, a vast U.S. National Park Service resource located on both sides of the Delaware River between Matamoras, PA and Belvidere, NJ. Millbrook is a re-creation of a turn-of-the-century village. Together with the U.S. National Park Service, the Millbrook Village Society works to show the way of life of a typical village during the 1850-1900 time period. During summer weekends a blend of NPS and volunteer personnel demonstrate crafts and activities of a typical village. Our big annual event is Millbrook Days, always held during the first full weekend in October. For 2014  this event will be on October 4 and 5, 10AM to 5PM. Pictures from the 2012 event can be seen at Millbrook Days 2012.For balance of schedule for 2013 go to  Calendar 2014.









       

 

          When is the Village Open  -

Being a part of the National Park Service, the village can be visited for a stroll thru all year for seven days a week. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day  on Saturdays and Sundays a blend of NPS and volunteer personnel demonstrate crafts and activities of a typical village. Various buildings are open to the public, generally between 10 AM and 4 PM. The number of buildings open for visitation is strictly dependent on the number of volunteers available on that day.  Please observe the areas that are still closed due to storm damage.

 

Directions to Millbrook:               GPS#s     41.073683  -74.963117

Unless you're coming from Blairstown, NJ, your best bet for finding Millbrook is to take I-80 to the westernmost exit in New Jersey. If you're coming from Pennsylvania on I-80, this will be the first exit in NJ after you cross the Delaware River. As you come down the exit ramp, make a sharp right. You'll pass under I-80 and hit a stop light. If you're coming from NJ on I-80, you'll make the last exit before going over the bridge into PA (Millbrook exit), proceed down the exit ramp, make a right, and you'll end up at this same stoplight. You'll probably wonder why this road needs a stoplight, but it's one lane wide for about 3/4 of a mile. When it was once a two lane road, the experience was truly life-changing. The light changes about every 3 minutes for opposing traffic. Millbrook is 12 miles from the I-80 bridge along this road. It may seem like an eternity, but it really is only 12 miles (of breathtaking views of the Delaware River), and you'll end up at the intersection of two roads. The village parking lot will be at this intersection. For those of you interested in internet maps, fill in your starting address in the form below and Google Maps will map a route for you. If there is more than one suggested route then slide your mouse over the various routes to select the one that suits you best. The end point in the maps is "Millbrook.Hardwick,NJ 07825" For those of you who can't back out of a driveway without setting the GPS unit we have included the GPS numbers above.
