An active agricultural setting, the Hockanum Rural Historic District contains 47 properties, including Georgian and Federal farmhouses, an 1840 schoolhouse, a former inn, and field, farm lanes, and agricultural outbuildings. It has remained virtually unchanged, with generations of farm families who have followed agricultural practices used since the time of the first English settlement.
