Batsto Village Country Living Fair October 16
Batsto Village, a beautiful historic village within Wharton State Forest, will host the annual Country Living Fair on October 16, 2016, as part of the Village’s 250th anniversary celebrations. The 31st annual Country Living Fair will take place on Sunday, October 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
Batsto Village is located on Rt. 542 in Washington Township in Burlington County. The Village, which is listed on both the New Jersey and National Register of Historic Places, includes more than 40 sites and structures, including the Batsto Mansion, a sawmill, a 19th-century ore boat, a charcoal kiln, ice and milk houses, a carriage house and stable, a blacksmith and wheelwright shop, a gristmill and a general store. The Batsto Post Office, established in 1852, still processes mail with a postmark having no zip code.
The popular fair will provide visitors to the South Jersey historical area with many opportunities to experience the joys of country life from when Batsto was founded in 1766 and right up to the current day. The fair will offer crafts, exhibits, music, old-time engines and cars, food, antiques, pony rides, farm equipment, chain-saw art, quilting, and more authentic South Jersey country attractions.
