Watkins Point Farm, also known as the James L. Horsey Farm and John T. Adams Farm, is a historic home located at Marion Station, Somerset County, Maryland. It is a three-part frame and sawn log dwelling. The one-room plan sawn log house was erected around 1780-90 and is extended to the west by a single-story, mid-19th century hyphen that connects the two-story, transverse-hall plan main block, erected around 1850. The interiors retain large portions of original woodwork. Also on the property is a 20th-century rusticated-block potato house.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
