How To Enter The Wick House

Park visitors may enter the Wick House, the historic farm home of the largest landowner in Jockey Hollow at the time of the 1779 Continental Army encampment, by joining a guided tour. Tours are offered by the National Park Service and volunteers on days when park buildings are open to the public---normally Thursday--Sunday..

Joining A Tour

When you arrive in Jockey Hollow, check with the staff at the Visitor Center or check the message boards in the parking lots. Tours are usually offered on a periodic basis throughout the day.

Special Tours

On occasion, volunteers and park employees may offer a chance to view them working on a craft, such as spinning or weaving, during the hours the Wick House is open. When this occurs, the tour may vary from the standard tour described here.
