Hockessin Friends Meetinghouse is a historic Quaker meeting house and national historic district located at DE 275 and 254 at Meetinghouse Road in Hockessin, New Castle County, Delaware. The district encompasses three contributing buildings and one contributing site. The meeting house was built in 1738. In 1973 it was a one-story white plastered stone building with a gable roof.[2] Photographs taken in 2014 show the plaster has been removed from the stone. It has a gable roof with projecting cornice and a crown moulding at the roof line. The other contributing buildings are a stable and a frame storehouse and a stone house dated to 1817. The contributing site is the cemetery.[2]
