A two story Cape Cod farmhouse,, flanked by a split rail fence and a fenced in kitchen garden. A large oak tree towers above the home rising out of the frame. It is early morning in early fall, with sunlight breaking through the fog surrounding the house.

Jockey Hollow

The Wick House

Henry Wick, largest landowner in Jockey Hollow, built this Cape Cod farmhouse in the 1750s. While the Continental Army camped on his land and cut down much of the standing timber, the Wick family hosted several Patriot officers in their home. Join a park ranger for a tour of the first floor and explore the farm field and garden on your own time. Learn more about the Wick House tours.
