About Raeford

Raeford is part of the Fayetteville Metropolitan Statistical Area. The area that would become Raeford was settled in 1783 by John and William Hoke, brothers who migrated from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. They were accompanied by their father, Jacob Hoke (1737–1822), a Revolutionary War veteran who had fought at the Battle of Brandywine and later served as a scout for General George Washington during his southern campaign against British forces. The elder Hoke received grants totaling , which he named "Hokesborough" after his family's ancestral home in Northern Ireland; this land became known as "Hokesboro". In 1808, John's son Robert married Elizabeth Moore (1790–1873), whose brother Joseph Moore built what is now known as the Old Brick House on Main Street around 1820; it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1978. The Moores also established an early grist mill nearby along Rocky Branch Creek; this structure still stands today but has not operated since 1940 due to damage sustained during Hurricane Hazel in 1954.
