Josephus Hoskins House

This is a private home, so please pull off the road in front of the house. Use your blinkers.

On the left side of the road is a brick house once owned by Josephus Hoskins (1841-1920), a Quaker minister recorded by Dover Friends Meeting in 1874. His wife as Emily Gallemore Hoskins (1846-1915). He became the principal minister about 1880 and served Dover Meeting until 1905. This house is a typical brick Quaker house of the mid 1800s. The addition and porch are more recent. In recent years the Hiatt family has owned this property.
