JOSEPH THOMPSON HOUSE
c.1800 ?

Joseph Thompson House is a good example of a Colonial style residence. The charming 1 1/2 story cottage exhibits key features of this style, including distinctive gable dormers, shingle siding and overall symmetry. It is located on the former "Great Road" or "Post Road", now Church Street, in Middle Sackville near the intersection of the High Marsh Road.

Brothers Joseph and John Thompson came from Yorkshire in 1772. Joseph purchased land in Middle Sackville, reportedly paying in gold, and converted the land into farms. This house remained in the Thompson family for many years, before being conveyed to long time owner Roy Brooks in 1921.
