The Hoskins farmstead served as a staging area for British troops during the battle. There is the Hoskins house, a reconstructed kitchen, a barn and a blacksmith shop on site. The farmstead also has a kitchen garden and several plots of field crops, all representative of an 18th Century farm. Today, only 7.5 acres of the original 150-acre farmstead is still intact.
The Hoskins house was built on this property in 1811-1813. The Hoskins family owned the land from 1778 to 1925.
