Hoskins Farm Site

18th century southern colonial clapboard house and log kitchen

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.

You can tour the grounds of the Hoskins Farm with a Cell Phone Audio Tour. The entrance gate to the Hoskins Farm is located at 2200 New Garden Rd, Greensboro, NC 27410. Come to the Battlefield Visitors first to pick up the tour pamphlet and park map, a ranger will navigate you to the site. The buildings are closed except during special events such as the Battle Anniversary and Living History programs, and for school tours. Even though the buildings are closed, visitors are encouraged to walk around the farm.

The Barn is closed to visitors, it is structurally unsound and dangerous.

The Colonial Heritage Center is closed permanently and is scheduled for removal to aid in preserving and interpreting the Hoskins Farm Site.
