Long Description:
The Cockayne Farm

The Cockayne farmhouse was built by Bennett Cockayne around 1850. His son Samuel A.J. was renowned as a sheep breeder. Dubbed Glendale by Samuel's wife Hannah, the farm was the namesake for Glen Dale when it was incorporated in 1924. In 1965, much of the farm was sold to make way for John Marshall High School. The farmhouse is on the National Register of Historic Places.
