  • The former home of General Marshall is beautifully restored to when the Marshall's lived there during the 1940s and 1950s. The docents are so knowledgeable and were great to talk to. If you love histo...  more »
  • My family enjoyed the tour of the Marshall House and learned so much. George C Marshall was a very interesting man. Loved the fact that his wife bought the property without talking to him first.  more »
  • Checked their website and called them on Friday to see if they are open. However drive over an hour to get there to find out they closed because of an event on Monday. Can't give any positive rating i...  more »

  • For the student of World War 2, of modern U.S. history, or of the Cold War, the well-preserved home of George C. Marshall is definitely worth a visit. Anyone with a fondness for the household decorating of the 1950s will also enjoy the house and furnishings. Churchill called Marshall "the organizer of victory" for his role in managing the Allied war effort. His home provides a look at the life choices of a plain man dedicated to his country. Overshadowed by figures like Eisenhower, McAuthur, and Patton, Marshall is probably one of the least appreciated but most important leaders in our nations history.
  • A wonderful home and history I was mostly unfamiliar with. The docents guiding the tour were excellent and seemed to really share their knowledge and respect for George C. Marshall. Made me want to read and learn more about this incredible man and the influence he had on history. The home was like taking a step back in time. Well worth the visit.
  • I personally used to work at the Fort in high school and still love it there. History comes to life in this house, and all around the Fort. The Marshall House has so many fun aspects (the ceiling frescos, the to-the-floor windows, the gold-dust and ruby-flake painting in the dining room). Best of all is that tours are always free....
  • A very well preserved property and an excellent guided tour.
  • Definitely worth the trip out to visit and hear about the life of Gen. Marshall.
