Monday was a gorgeous day in New Jersey!!
We went for a walk in
The historic village was once an iron-producing, factory-town known as the Howell Iron Works.
The village was a self sufficient community,
with carpentry and blacksmith shops, bakery, church, school, post office and general store.
There were also row houses for the workers to live in.
There was a pretty cherry blossom tree beside the church.
This is the church the hubs and I wanted to get married in.
I was only 19 and my mom would not allow it for whatever reason,
so we married elsewhere.
There is so much more to see in the village, come visit and see for yourself.
This is a great place to experience life in the 18th century life.
