Today, Martin's Tavern, located in the Martin's Tavern/Humphry Marshalls Historical Park, is the site for many community events in Marshallton. it is visited year round by history enthusiasts eager to learn more about the role of the Marshallton area during the American Revolution.

The ruins have been lovingly re-pointed and restored to an accurate historic footprint of the original tavern and are now surrounded by lawns and bordered by historically accurate and award winning plantings. Period documents and maps are displayed describing the tavern's role as a watering hole, traveler's stopover and local militia meeting place.  The life of famous American botanist Humphry Marshall is also celebrated.  

The adjacent lot was joined to Martin's Tavern in 2021.  A retaining wall has been added in order to level the grassy side yard.  The new yard improves the setting for events held at the Tavern.

A plaque honoring those persons and businesses who initially gave $1,000 or more in money or services is displayed at the tavern site.
