Howell Living History Farm is a time machine that takes you back to the year 1900 - when horses and buggies traveled the lanes of Pleasant Valley, and when farms were bordered by snake fences and Osage orange trees. This sprawling restored working farm has been operating for over 250 years. ● The farm is maintained and operated by The Mercer County Park Commission as example of farming as it was practiced in at the turn of the 20th century.
