One of my favorite places in South Jersey to visit during the height of fall foliage season, is the historic ghost town of Batsto. Best of all, it is free and open to the public to explore!

The village was a thriving industrial area in the South Jersey Pinelands,now located in the Wharton State Forrest. Batsto was founded in 1766, and was instrumental in manufacturing supplies during the Revolutionary War.



When you walk around the houses and workshops on a crisp fall day in South Jersey,  you can picture what it was really like over 250 years ago when hundreds of workers and dozens of families lived here.

This wonderful video is posted by BTV on YouTube.  You can find out more about Batsto Village here on the official web site.
