James Thome Farm is a historic farm in Eighty Four, Pennsylvania. It consists of the Thome House, with the oldest section built c. 1810; two outbuildings, six contributing structures, and two ponds. The farm's architectural evolution, of Georgian-inspired, Greek Revival, and a 1950s vernacular wing is typical of other long-used farms in the Washington County area.[2]

It is designated as a historic residential landmark/farmstead by the Washington County History & Landmarks Foundation,[3] and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
