The A. Armstrong Farm was a historic farm located at Hockessin, New Castle County, Delaware. The property included two contributing buildings. They were a log house with a stone addition added in the 1830s, and a frame tri-level stone and frame barn (c. 1830s). The stuccoed log section was three bays wide, and it had a two-story, two bay stone wing.[2] The farm house and barn were demolished before 2002.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
