Thank you for your support

Tom McGuire, a history teacher/author, lives in the village and advised Linda that there was something special under the rundown apartment building eyesore at the east end of Marshallton. It was he who convinced Linda to contact John Milner, a well-known architect and expert on colonial building. They researched and determined that the ruins once supported a Revolutionary War tavern.


Craig Rybinski, owner of a landscape business in Avondale, happened to be on hand during one of the formative meeting of FOMT. He offered to prepare plans for the gardens and park surrounds - his business has done our landscaping ever since.


Tim Still who lives across the street from the tavern, is a woodworker and carpenter par excellence. He has made a cover for the electrical box, provided a drop box for brochures and always provides a lovely tree for our Christmas celebration. Even our website is set up by a neighbor of Martin's tavern - the list goes on and on!
