John Marshall House

< Back to Listings
  • 818 E. Marshall St, Richmond, VA 23219
  • (804) 648-7998

The John Marshall House was the Richmond home of "the Great Chief Justice" from 1790 to 1835. The longest serving Chief Justice to date, Marshall was known as definer of the Constitution and shaper of the modern United States Supreme Court. Listed on the National and Virginia historic registers, the House has undergone remarkably few changes since Marshall's lifetime, containing many original Marshall family pieces and the largest collection of Richmond Made Federal Furnishings. Your guided tour of Marshall’s “Court End” home will remove you from the bustling 21st century urban center of downtown Richmond, into a time when the river city was just beginning to flourish as the new Capital of Virginia and the Court End neighborhood was the choicest location in which to live.
The Marshall House is walking distance from the Virginia State Capitol, the Library of Virginia, and the Valentine Richmond History Center. Visitors to the site can enjoy a guided tour of the house with a remarkable collection of original furnishings, take a stroll through the colorful garden, visit the museum shop, or even play a round of quoits (John Marshall's favorite game).
