The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C13H 9NO3, consists of two crystallographically independent molecules. In each molecule, the tetra-hydro-furan (THF) ring adopts an envelope conformation with one of the methyl-ene C atoms positioned at the flap. The dihedral angles between the mean plane of the THF and the benzofuran ring system are 70.85 (5) and 89.59 (6)°. In the crystal, molecules are stacked in a column along the a-axis direction through C - H⋯O hydrogen bonds, with columns further linked by C - H⋯N and C - H⋯O interactions.
