Mathew Hughes has big plans for the future of Uncle Shuck’s corn maze. Owner and operator of the business that called Hwy. 53 on Gober Hill home for the past 17 years, Hughes recently moved the corn maze, and the recognizable red barn, across town. The new location straddles Hwy. 9 between Rock Creek Park and the Dawson County Middle School, and like the Hwy. 53 location, is also next to the Etowah River. Due to limited room and having to lease the Hwy. 53 space yearly from the property owner, Hughes, 30, said the move makes sense for the business because he now owns the property the corn maze will inhabit. He said he now has 48 acres to work with, when before he had 26.
