Significance: The Phillips Bank Barn, near Hockessin in Mill Creek Hundred, dates to the 1760s and is the only surviving eighteenth-century bank barn in New Castle County. Because it is a pre-agricultural reform barn, the Phillips Bank Barn is quite different in form than such later barns as the Dennison Bank Barn of 1825 near Brackenville or the mid-to-late nineteenth century J.M. Gross Bank Barn near Newark. It is constructed with five bays instead of three, with two wagon entrances in the second and fourth bays.
