Welcome to

Batsto Village

Batsto Village is an historic site in the South Central Pinelands of New Jersey. It is known throughout the country, both for its beauty and its historical significance. Batsto has roots dating back to 1766, with nearly two and a half centuries of American history available for our visitors to see, all with the lovely Pinelands as a scenic backdrop.

This website is maintained by the Batsto Citizens Committee, Inc.. We are a non-profit corporation dedicated to advising and assisting the state of New Jersey in preserving Batsto Village, and educating the public about its history. We’re also here to help make your visit to Batsto both enjoyable and memorable.

Batsto Village is overseen by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Parks & Forestry
