The Thompson Cottage, also called the James Marshall Cottage, was a tenant farmer's house built by James Marshall about the time of the American Revolution. It is located in Concord Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
A free black, Thomas Thompson, bought the house and 2 acres in 1847. He and his descendants lived there until 1971. It is an excellent example of an unaltered eighteenth century tenant farmer's homestead. The building was built sometime after 1774.
