Jockey Hollow is known for housing the Continental Army twice during the American Revolutionary War during the winter. It was noted that during the time period that the soldiers were there, several blizzards took place. The soldiers being in the area impacted the local townsfolk because the soldiers brought smallpox with them and several hundred died from the spread. There were over ten soldiers housed in each of the 14 x 16 huts. The last soldier left the area in 1782 and one hundred years later the area was purchased for preservation. This was the third home in history to be preserved in the United States. Since then there have been improvements and additions made so that all who visit can understand and learn about the history of the area.
