Owner description: The Marshall House (formerly Dodona Manor), is situated on 3.8 acres of gardens on the eastern end of Leesburg's Old and Historic District. The site is designated a National Historic Landmark as the residence of General George C. Marshall from 1941 until 1959. During his residency in the home, General Marshall served our nation as Chief of Staff of the Army, as Special Envoy to China, as Secretary of State, as President of the American Red Cross, and as Secretary of Defense. His career as a military officer spanned 44 years, including distinguished service in two world wars. General Marshall was the architect of the European Recovery Plan (The Marshall Plan), and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953. General Marshall was described as the "Greatest American of the twentieth century" by both Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.

“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.
