Allaire State Park Campground Professional Review and Guide

"In 1822, businessman James P. Allaire headed south from Manhattan. He founded Howell Iron Works Company on an industrial bog iron processing area active since 1793. His integrated mining, smelting, and forging business thrived for a few decades, with more than 400 people living on company land during the 1830s. Howell Works’ self-contained private community included homes, a church, a school, and service businesses such as a general store, blacksmith shop, carpenter’s shop, and a bakery.

By the 1850s, bog furnaces were well on their way to extinction. Howell Works became a ghost town and was used as a movie studio, a French restaurant, and a Boy Scout camp before volunteers began restoration in the 1950s. Today Howell Works is called Allaire Village and is an outdoor living-history museum located within the confines of Allaire State Park. Today’s only residents of Allaire live in the campground for a maximum of two consecutive weeks. The tranquil campground is more than a mile away from the village and central activity area and consists of four small loops around a central bathhouse and playground."
