Join the Historic Village at Allaire as we welcome the Civil Skirmish and Encampment to our grounds as they reenact life during the Civil War. Visitors can travel back in time to explore Civil War Roadshow where you can have your family treasures identified and appraised. Join the crowds in watching and participate in military drills, meet President Lincoln and influential military figures, as well as learn about the lives of soldiers and civilians. A skirmish between Confederate and Union Troops will take place in the Show Field after the baseball game. The encampment lasts two days; on Saturday June 17th it is from 10am to 4pm and Sunday June 18th from 10am to 3pm. There are special lecture series, musical programs, camp tours and much more taking place. Admission is $5 per car. We are also offering a lantern tour for $20 from 7pm to 9:30pm.
The Historic Village at Allaire, the non profit living history museum receives no funding from the State of New Jersey and so relies on donations, admissions, and purchases made at the General Store and Bakery to continue teaching the public about life in New Jersey in 1836.
