Cookes House, also known as Tom Paine’s House, is a historic home located at York, Pennsylvania, York County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1761, and is a two-story, Germanic and Provincial Georgian influenced stone dwelling. About 1800, it was converted to a double house. It is the third oldest building in York, after the Gen. Horatio Gates House and Golden Plough Tavern. It is believed to have been the home of Thomas Paine (1737–1809), while the Second Continental Congress convened in York, September 30, 1777 to June 27, 1778.
