For thousandsof years, before the pioneers arrived in New Jersey, theLenape Indians lived in these forests, hunting for deer and bear, living in wigwams, fashioning dugout canoes fromtulip poplar trees, and crafting their tools out of rock and bone. They lived close to the land, existing in balancewith nature. However, the Lenape are not a thing of the past, but a part of New Jersey’s heritage that is alive andwell today.

Everyone can enjoy activities and crafts, such as
molding a clay pot by the re, making a re without matches,
and playing the real games that Lenape children played tohone their skills. Take a guided walk on the wooded trailsto discover how the Lenape used local plants to meet their needs or explore the interior of the wigwam, set up as itwould have been hundreds of years ago.Admission is $5 per person ages 3 and up.
