The fascinating 213-acre Fosterfields Living Historical Farm transports visitors back to the late 1800s, when it was Charles Foster’s gentleman’s farm. Costumed docents answer questions and do their farm chores the old-fashioned way, while teaching visitors about raising animals and growing vegetables. Explore the 1920s farmhouse and the Foster family’s 1854 Gothic revival-style mansion, The Willows (which was built by Paul Revere’s grandson).

This New Jersey and National Register Historic Site bridges the gap between history and modern life in an interactive way. The intriguing Caroline Foster, Charles’ daughter, donated several personal belongings to the living museum, including her personal vintage car collection (now the interactive Transportation Exhibit).

Of Special Note:

  • Caroline Foster lived here for 98 of her 102 years
  • She hand-built the Temple of Abiding Peace
  • Charles Foster bought the farm from General Joseph Warren Revere, a grandson of Paul Revere
