Long Description:

Although the historical maker is sponsored by the Indian Mills Historical Society, some maps have this listed as Vincentown and Shamong as well as Indian Mills. These small, unincorporated towns dot the landscape in this part of New Jersey. This marker is on the right side of the property. There is nowhere to park in front of the house, so pass the house on the right and at the next side street, maybe 100 feet or so away, turn in and park on the side of the road. There is another marker to the right of this one about 50 feet away. The marker is marked number twenty-one on the Indian Mills Historical Society website. All the signs are green, made of metal and have the historical society name marked at the top in an arc. The sign reads:

THOMPSON HOUSE
Edward T. Thompson, former State
Assemblyman (1871-73), Township
Official, resided here. Home built
1807 by Thomas Bedford. Also a
store and Post Office.
