Thornbury Farm is the site where the final engagement of the Battle of Brandywine occurred. During the battle, there were so many Americans shot and bayoneted that it was said the blood flowed over two miles to the Brandywine. In addition to there being ghosts of those who may have battled here, the most famous ghost here is that of a little girl who could be heard crying in one of the rooms.

The barn and spring house on the grounds were used to hold prisoners and the main house once was a hospital. Two mass burial sites on the property were used to dispose of dead bodies, which could be another reason as to why the grounds are claimed to be haunted.

Thornbury Farm began as a stone house that was built in 1709. There's also a log cabin from the 1600's. Additional building have been added to the property over time.
