“Great Visit at the home of General Marshall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2011

Very nice historic home of General Marshall. The children from General Marshall's second marriage donated most of the furnishings and personal items that are on display. The home was fully restored to the period when the Marshalls lived in Leesburg.
