This special historic village has delighted visitors with a glimpse into the past since its opening in 1978.

The Village features historic structures from the 1700s and 1800s, reloca­ted to its site within Johnson Pa­rk. They represent different architecture styles found throughout Middlesex County’s Rarita­n Valley. The Village’s founder, Dr. Joseph Kler, and a group of local residents saved most of the buildings from demolition and transported them to the Village where they were reassembled and restored to reflect how they would have looked way back when.

Now you can explore these buildings of early residents and the archaeological discoveries from the long-vanished port community of Raritan Landing, which was located in the same area as East Jersey Old Town Village, on the Raritan River.
