The enthusiastic docent made the house come alive with stories about the Marshall family. I was amazed by the wisdom and sacrifices of people who provided the foundation of a governmental system that has made the US the envy of the world.

John Marshall is one of the most appreciated figures in American history. Learning about him and his impact on American history was highlight of our Richmond visit

Definitely worth a visit. The tour guides in each room were informative. His home had changed very little from when he lived there. Nice to see this type of preservation. 50% of items are his and family’s furnishings. His desk, books, china, etc.

John Marshall may be more recognizable today for his name than for his carefully considered decisions. If you're interested in Marshall, this is worth the time. There are a number of his items throughout the house, and the guides there will make sure that you...More
