Hemlock Farms History In 1927 William Brewster began acquiring the land that would eventually become Hemlock Farms Community Association. HFCA is a private, residential, recreational community nestled in the northeastern Pocono Mountain region. In 1963 Home Smith International purchased 4,500 acres for $700,000 in order to convert it from a private estate to a community with 3,726 lots.
Individual property owners now own 95 percent of the lots on which more than 3,000 homes have been constructed, with roughly 1,000 occupied on a permanent basis, and the rest by weekend or summer residents.
