The Hancock House is a historic structure located in the Hancock’s Bridge section of Lower Alloways Creek Township, Salem County, New Jersey. It was built in 1734 by William & Sarah Hancock, a prominent Salem County Quaker family. The house is an excellent example of English Quaker pattern end wall brick houses associated with the lower Delaware Valley and southwestern New Jersey

In March of 1778, Major John Graves Simcoe and 300 Queen’s Rangers attacked the civilian and militia occupants of this Quaker home. It would later be called a massacre. The site is on the National Register of Historic Places.
