As an european family we all know the Marshall's plan that USA activated after the second world war in europe. This man gained the peace Nobel price and it is the only price assigned to a military general. A free entrance and a free guided tour is provided by a volunteer so keen to explain all aspect of the house.... More

There are a lot of neat old buildings in the area and it was fun that one was open for a tour. The top floor is private offices but you can walk around the bottom floor and the stairs. This does not take long and is worth a stop.

We had an excellent guide who was very knowledgable about Mr. Marshall and his time in Vancouver. He shared little nuances about the property. DON'T MISS the newspaper that announces President Lincoln's death. It's in the office area

A beautifully restored house filled with history... the volunteers are well versed in the different areas of the house and it has been known to host many great events. If you are a military buff, read up on Marshall and take a visit. You won't regret.

They did a great job restoring the house. It's beautiful and the volunteer did a great job talking about all the different features. We watched a short video about officers row and the history of fort Vancouver. We were even greeted with cold lemonade on a hot day. We loved every minute.

Great step into history. The woodwork in the house is just out of this world. Plus you get to learn more about the mastermind of the reconstruction of Europe after WWII

I've visited the Marshall House on several occasions for a variety of reasons; primarily as an historic meeting place, to contact representatives of our two federal Senators, and as a striking facility to rent for business retreats. But this trip was truly historic in focus-- not just to visit the house, but rather the home of General George C. Marshall.... More
