The Hoggat House
Philip & Mary Hoggat built this house in 1754, 4 miles southwest of here. The Hoggats were among the first Quakers to move to this area. Donated by Mrs. Betty Jo Kellam, the cabin was relocated to this site in 1973 & restored with funds from the Amos family.
The cabin now contains a floor loom and other textile production artifacts of the early 19th century. Craft demonstrations are also conducted here.
Erected by High Point Museum.
