Beginning in 2003, Friends of Martin's Tavern (FOMT), a citizen-formed 501c(3) non-profit corporation, restored Martin's Tavern. Since that restoration, several neglected properties within site of the tavern have seen restorative work and the village grows more beautiful every year. While no one can claim that the restoration of the tavern by itself has sparked a renaissance of pride in Marshallton, it can be said that when a small village cares for its most neglected properties in this way, it can’t help but be an inspiration to those who own other historic structures in the village.


FOMT is also the caretakers of the Marshallton Blacksmith Shop, a nearby historic building which was built in 1750 and remains essentially unchanged from its original condition.
