An old-time barn auction will be held at Howell Living History Farm on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Throughout the day visitors can participate in two types of auctions: a silent auction from 10 a.m. to noon and a live, old-fashioned barn auction from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.

Items made by the farm’s blacksmiths, restoration carpenters, bakers and sewing guild will be included in the auction. Buyers can also bid on hand and garden tools, books, paintings, sleigh bells, household items and lessons in draft-horse driving and open-hearth cooking. Outside of the auction, there will be sale on the lawn for visitors to shop. Parking and admission are free.

The auction is a fundraiser of the non-profit Friends of Howell Farm. Proceeds support the farm's school and community outreach programs, living history tools and furnishings.

The GPS address is 70 Woodens Lane, Hopewell Township, NJ 08530.
