Hockessin Area

The village of Hockessin (pronounced HO-kess-in) was established in 1688 and has been one of the fastest growing areas in Delaware since 1990. Some historians believe that the town's name was derived from the Lenape Indian word for "pieces of bark" or possibly from a misspelling of the word "occasion" as it was pronounced by the Quakers who were the original settlers here. The geography is a beautiful landscape of gently rolling hills and woodlands extending into neighboring Chester County, PA. In the past 30 years or so the Hockessin area has transformed from an agricultural base to a very desirable and affluent community.

We're glad you are vising this page and hope you enjoy the sampling of what Hockessin has to offer! We have included a few videos of Dave touring local businesses (Tour the Store!) as well as links to additional sites that you may find helpful and informative.
