Batsto Village, Hammonton, New Jersey

Posted on: June 6th, 2013 by

History is one of my favorite subjects. I’m very passionate about learning about history, and it is an added bonus to learn about history in New Jersey. I haven’t been there in years but I decided to take a trip to Batsto Village in Hammonton, New Jersey.

 

There are about 40 different sites to look at Batsto and three trails to take.

 

Stop by the Batsto Village Visitor Center first to get a map and information to explore the grounds.
