For hundreds of years, over 80% of the American population lived in semi-isolation on small family farms scattered throughout the countryside. Award-winning Hancock’s Resolution is one of the very few of those farms still remaining. Due to its authenticity and simplicity it is considered a “National Treasure”. It is a small house with a huge story to tell because of its five historic themes. This is the place you want to visit.
The Hancock’s Resolution farmstead is authentic to the 1780 – 1860 period. At the time of the Revolutionary War and before most Americans did not live in towns. They lived on small farmsteads scattered around the countryside. Very few remain and fewer still have been restored but never modified. This is the way it used to be during the first half of Marylands history; that is, before 1822.
