Siders, Rebecca J.
The Jackson House is located near a major intersection in Hockessin and is significant for. its association with several influential families in the community for over 200 years. These families - the Dixons, the Jacksons and the Garretts - contributed to the development of the village of Hockessin by maintaining large land holdings and operating mining and saw milling facilities in the vicinity. The house is also significant architecturally, documenting the shiR fiom log to stone construction in the early nineteenth century and a stylistic shift to Georgian symmetry.
