Inscription. George Hack settled in the Sacramento River delta in 1855, seven years before the town of Freeport was established, and was a true pioneer farmer of the area. Hack operated a small dairy and grew a variety of crops on his ranch. His apricots, once called the best in the state, were an unusual crop for the Freeport area and were transported up and down the river from Hack's Landing. The Hack Family maintained part of the ranch until 1964, and descendants of George still inhabit the delta. Hack built his farmhouse in 1879 in the Italianate style popular during the Victorian era. Located in the west center of his ranch, Hack's house is the only surviving example of an Italianate rural farmhouse in the Freeport area and is a reminder of the farming history of the Delta.

The Hack House was was restored in 1992 by the City of Sacramento Golf Division, Department of Community and Visitor Services.
