Martin-Little House is a historic home located in Charlestown Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It consists of five sections built between about 1735 and 1960. The oldest section was built about 1735, and is a 1 1/2-story, stuccoed stone saltbox form dwelling. A 2 1/2-story, five bay, stone main section was added as a wing in 1810. Later additions are the two-story kitchen wing dated to the late-19th century; two-story bedroom wing from the mid-20th century; and one-story, shed roofed frame addition of 1960. The oldest section may have served as a stagecoach stop and post office in the mid-18th century.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
