Of the 71 principal buildings in the Marshallton Historic District, 67 contribute to its historical and architectural significance. Marshallton lies four miles west of the county seat of West Chester; its surroundings are still rural. Leaving the Borough of West Chester by Strasburg Road, you will pass sprawling farms, open fields, and the Stroud Land Preserve. Near the preserve there is a small group of historic buildings also nearby is the Nationally Registered Cope's Bridge on the East Branch Brandywine. Atop a hill, commanding a sweeping view of the valley drained by the Brandywine lies Historic Marshallton, a village dating from the late 18th century. Named for longtime resident, and Botanist Humphrey Marshall, the village began as a cluster of houses near an inn known as the Center House, or Martin’s Tavern. A self-contained community at the turn of the 20th century, today it features some 50 century-old or older dwellings, two historic inns, a restored blacksmith shop, two places of worship, the former town hall, and a couple of ancient cemeteries.
