Marshall House Tour
- Duration: 30 Minutes
- Location: Vancouver, Washington
Please check in for your tour at the front entrance of the Marshall House.
The Marshall House is named in honor of General George C. Marshall, who lived there from 1936 to 1938, serving as Commander of the Barracks and the regional Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). This home’s Queen Anne architecture is the most popular of high Victorian styles, with ornate features including stained glass, decorative woodwork, and a round turret. The museum-like setting features traditional furnishing, military memorabilia, and Marshall’s study.
Some historians credit Marshall's stay here and experience directing thousands of young CCC workers across the Pacific Northwest with his later success integrating an estimated eight million draftees into a cohesive, motivated fighting force in World War II.
For guests with limited mobility, an accessible entrance and ADA parking is in the back of the Marshall House.
