JACKSON – On Dec. 23, 1973, a young singer by the name of Bruce Springsteen appeared at what was then the Rova Farm Resort, Route 571 Trenton Rd. The admission fee was just $5.

Now the governing body is looking to purchase 34 acres on the Rova Farm site at 120 Cassville Rd. that part of the historic Rova Farms property.
