Belvidere Town Square and The Shoe Tree Oak

Cummins House, Belvidere, New Jersey
The Cummins Home, Belvidere, NJ

Last week, I showed you the county courthouse and war memorial in Belvidere, New Jersey. 

Belvidere considers itself “the best kept secret in New Jersey”. No more! It is a lovely town with more Victorians per square mile than any other in New Jersey.

The Chapel At The Historic Village at Allaire

The Chapel at Allaire Village


The Historic Village at Allaire is a historic bog iron town located in Allaire State Park in Monmouth County, New Jersey. 

 

James P. Allaire created the village to house his workers at Howell Iron works from the 1860’s to the 1840’s.

The village was a place where the workers never had to leave to live a whole life within the village. 

 

The beautiful and simple little chapel is the most famous building in the village. 

 

The church is unusual because the bell tower was placed in the back of the church instead of in the front. 

 

That was because it was too heavy for the front part of the church.

Visiting Cape May

Cape May Stage


The downtown area of Cape May, New Jersey is charming. It is a very busy beach resort town, and the beach is great – but so are strolling around, eating and shopping! 

 

To get to Cape May, you get off at Exit 0 on the Garden State Parkway!

You can take bike around town, take trolley rides, and also take a horse-and-carriage ride.

I was thrilled see the Dala Horse sign indicating a shop filled with lovely Swedish items. 

 

My mother was born in Sweden, and I grew up with beautiful Swedish items in my home.
