The officers row was so clean and one of a kind atmosphere. The rest of the grounds that is now a open park. People were jogging,walking their dogs and people were just relaxing at the picnic tables. It was so peaceful. I recommend to anyone who lives here or is visiting.

Interesting place with an excellent docent. This is not a long tour but our docent was so good that we stayed about twice as long as we would have otherwise.

It is worth stopping in to tour The Marshall House. The docents are knowledgable and friendly, the displays are well done and it is just fun to imagine life in their home. It is lovely.

The historical buildings established prior to both World Wars, housing famous American Generals including George Armstrong Custer, Ulysses Grant, and George Marshall, as part of the Officers' Row complex in downtown Vancouver, WA. Formerly a barracks in the Old West, and one of the few lasting tributes to George Marshall.

Wonderfully done tour of a distinguished American General's quarters lived in from 1036-38 when he was Commanding Ft. Vancouver prior to his Washington posting as Army Chief of Staff just prior to WW II. A must see.
