Farm House




The house was built in sections, reflecting the changing needs of the family.  The earliest part dates to the late 18th century, center hall and parlor were added around 1840, and the "modern" kitchen around 1900.  Mercer County is currently preserving the farm house with a matching grant through the Garden State Historic Preservation Trust Fund and assistance from the New Jersey Historic Trust and the Department of Community Affairs State of New Jersey.




Howell Farm is owned by the County of Mercer and operated by the Mercer County Park Commission with the support and assistance of The Friends of Howell Living History Farm. The farm is an educational facility open to the public that preserves and interprets farming life and processes from the era of 1890-1910. Howell Farm is a proud member of the Association for Living History, Farm and Agricultural Museums (ALHFAM).
