The Hoskins Farm is an 18th century farmstead, preserved by the park to tell the story of Joseph and Hannah Hoskins, two colonists who fled the war during the Northern Campaign and settled in the Carolina backcountry planning for a peaceful life. They could not guess that the American Revolution would move to the South and into their home.

Access the OnCell Tour website for guided audio to tour the Hoskins Farmstead site, located at 2200 New Garden Road. Joseph and Hannah Hoskins purchased this 150-acre farmstead in May 1778, the third year of the Revolutionary War. Having fled the war in Chester County, Pennsylvania, imagine how they must have felt when the war came, not just to their county, but to their farm.

Tour Stops include:

1. Introduction and the Revolution
2. Fleeing from Battle
3. The Hoskins Family
4. The Kitchen
5. The Barn (The Barn is closed to visitors, it is structurally unsound and dangerous.)

There are no bathrooms at the Hoskins Farm site. The nearest bathroom is currently Stop 6 on the Battlefield Tour Road. The Visitor Center is temporarily closed due to COVID-19. Check our Current Conditions Page for the most up-to-date information on our modified park operations.
