Millbrook Village, part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, is a re-created community of
the 1800s where aspects of pioneer life are exhibited and occasionally demonstrated by skilled and dedicated docents
throughout the village. Although most of the buildings at the site are replications, Millbrook has a real past.
A few of the old structures have survived the ravages of Mother Nature, and escaped condemnation to make way for
the ill-fated Tocks Island Dam project in the 1960s. Although the project sealed the fate of this and other villages
in what is now a National Park, the Millbrook Village Society has worked hard and consistently to bring the village
back to life.

On the first full weekend of October the annual Millbrook Village Days Festival takes place. During those
two days the village comes alive with up to 200 costumed crafts people demonstrating many activities. The photos
that follow are from the 2009 Festival.
