Walking Tour: East Jersey Old Town and Cornelius Low House

In a fully functional recreation of 18th-century living, the East Jersey Old Town Village offers visitors the chance to experience the daily life of blacksmiths, tailors, and stone carvers in the American colonies. The Cornelius Low House — now home to the Middlesex County Museum–is the former family home of Cornelius Low, a businessman in the Raritan Landing community who owned a warehouse for grain he purchased from local farmers, then shipped to New York. The building has stood since 1741 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
