Rock Hill Farm, also known as the Davis-Stauffer Farm Complex, is an historic, American home and farm and national historic district located in Montgomery Township in Franklin County, Pennsylvania.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[1]

History and architectural features[edit]

This district includes twelve contributing buildings, two contributing sites, and three contributing structures. They are associated with three areas: the Davis-Chamber farmstead (1793 and 1875), the Eliab Negley House (c. 1810), and the Joseph Negley farmstead (c. 1840). Contributing components of the Davis-Chamber farmstead include the log and frame main house (c. 1793), an eighteenth-century log smokehouse, a limestone milk house (c. 1810), a frame wash house (c. 1880), a frame outhouse (c. 1900), a frame wagon shed (c. 1900), and a frame barn with concrete silo (c. 1930). The property also has a stone wall (c. 1790–1820) and the archaeological remains of earlier buildings, including a limestone mill dismantled about 1930.

The Eliab Negley House is a log dwelling that was built between 1810 and 1823. The Joseph Negley farmstead includes a Greek Revival-style dwelling that was built between 1836 and 1850, with later modifications made circa 1900. Also located on the property are a contributing nineteenth century smokehouse, a frame wagon shed (c. 1900), and a large shed.[2]
