  • A Virtual Tour of the Village Many Years Later 

    After all these years it is an emotional experience to return to a place that was a major part of childhood experiences. Through the use of the Web, we invite you to join us on a virtual tour of the St. Joseph's Village site as it is today. [take tour]
  • LoriAnn Takes a Summer Stroll Back to SJV

    A period of time before we took our tour of the Village in preparation for the "Virtual Tour of the Village Today," LoriAnn went on her own pilgrimage and captured on film several examples of the Village as it stands today with the trees in full bloom. [see]
  • Bergen County Health Care Center

    The nursing home that once occupied the girls end of the Village has closed pending the sale of the county owned property. The nursting home was established when Bergen County bought the peoperty after the Village closed. You can see the nursing home facility as it was in our virtual tour of the Village.     

    See this link for more information on the closing of the health care center: [see]


The site is in ruins and tours are no longer available.

We regret that the site is no longer occupied by of the Bergen County programs that once used the facility after the Village closed. The site sadly remains in ruins today and is unsafe to explore. It may still be possible to walk or ride arount the perimiter of the site. We do not incourage tressapesing. 

An alternative way ti tour the Village would be to see or Virtual Tour of the Village Today.  [take tour]
