The Hoskins Farm is an 18th century farmstead that is 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. The young couple 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.
