About Historic Allaire Village
The historic Allaire Village was known as the Howell Works in the early 19th century. At that time it was a thriving industrial community which produced pig and cast iron. The buildings which remain today include a general store, blacksmith shop, carpenters shop, managers house, foremans house and a church. One of the workers' row house buildings is now the Visitor Center and Museum. You will also be able to ride the train that is located just next to the village.

Trail & Path Info
There are some small paths directly around the village that are foot traffic only. As in, no bikes or horses allowed.
If you grab a map, you will be able to find multiple trails down to the Manasquan River. You can also find your way all the way to the campground, or north of the village towards the old (and closed off)Arthur Brisbane Child Treatment Center.
The Edgar Felix Bikepath starts way back in Manasquan and comes all the way to the parking area near the village. You could even park in the village parking lots and bike out from there.
You can not get from the village to the main MTB/Hiking trails on the southern side of the park. The main lot for these trails is found a few miles away off Hospital Rd.
Admission & Guidelines
Allaire State Park has an entrance fee between Memorial Day and Labor Day. You will need to pay this to the park before entering the village.
Some special events, like Wine Festivals, may have additional fees beyond the park entrance fee.
