1. Mary Thompson House Marker
Inscription. Educator Mary E. Thompson (1871-1967) grew up in this house, which was built sometime between 1842 and 1864. She was considered "a woman of superior native ability" by the dean of pedagogy at New York University where she received a doctorate in 1909. After teaching in Ohio, New Jersey, and Florida, Thompson returned to Southfield in 1921 and dedicated herself to teaching. Upon her death, the house was given to the city as a senior center, as stipulated in her will.
