Mercer County has been asked whether the commercial airline operating at Trenton-Mercer Airport utilizes any Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, which have recently been banned by the Federal Aviation Administration due to mechanical issues. The commercial carrier at Trenton-Mercer Airport does not have that aircraft in its fleet, and the airport is not directly affected by the federally imposed grounding of the Boeing 737 Max 8.

Howell Farm corn maze offers extended hours Nov. 3 and 4

Post Date:10/31/2018 11:39 AM
HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP — Howell Living History Farm's 4-acre corn maze will be open Saturday, Nov. 3, and Sunday, Nov. 4, giving fall fun-seekers one last chance to solve its puzzle. On both days, maze entry comes with a hayride ticket that takes visitors for a scenic trip along the southern slopes of Belle Mountain.

General admission is $10 for ages 10 and older, $8 for children ages 5-9 and free for children 4 and under. The hours of entry are noon until 8 p.m. on Saturday and noon until 4 p.m. on Sunday. Maze-goers will be able to walk through the pathways and solve its three-way board game one last time before the close of the fall season.

Guests seeking the ultimate challenge can try solving the maze in the dark, when moon, stars and lamplight are needed to find the way out.

The maze is the annual fundraiser of the all-volunteer Friends of Howell Farm, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Proceeds from the maze are used to support the farm's historic preservation projects and its educational programs for schools.

Howell Farm is owned by the County of Mercer and operated by the Mercer County Park Commission. The corn maze is located on Valley Road, one mile west of the farm. GPS address: 17 Valley Road, Hopewell Township, N.J. 08530.

The farm's Visitor Center and historic site are located at 70 Woodens Lane, Hopewell Township. Visiting hours at the farm are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. Parking and admission are free.
