John Marshall is one of the most appreciated figures in American history. Learning about him and his impact on American history was highlight of our Richmond visit

Definitely worth a visit. The tour guides in each room were informative. His home had changed very little from when he lived there. Nice to see this type of preservation. 50% of items are his and family’s furnishings. His desk, books, china, etc.

John Marshall had such a big role in our country’s early history and the guided tour was EXCELLENT and so detailed. That the house has so many original things is extraordinary.
