The Benjamin Franklin Jones Cottage also known as Braemar Cottage is a cottage on the National Register of Historic Places in Cresson Township, Cambria County, Pennsylvania, United States134

In 1990, the mansion was purchased by a group that desired to restore it In November 2009, a county judge declared the declining property a nuisance and ordered that it be demolished When the historical group appealed to the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, the town supervisors agreed to postpone the demolition until May 2010 A request for a $150,000 grant that the group hoped could fund renovations was rejected56

The structure was saved from demolition in 2011 when it was purchased by a Cresson, Pennsylvania couple who intended to restore it7
