Join the Friends of Howell Living History Farm

Howell Farm is a time machine that takes visitors to the year 1900, when horse drawn buggies traveled the lanes of PLeasant Valley and when farms were bordered by snake fences and osage orange trees. Each year, over 65,000 visitors experience their rural heritage through the living history programs offered at Howell Farm.  By becoming a member of the Friends of Howell Farm, you can help preserve this local treasure.
