The John Marshall House, built in 1790 in the fashionable Court End neighborhood of Richmond, was the home of the Great Chief Justice for forty-five years. Listed on the National and Virginia Historic Registers, the John Marshall House has undergone remarkably few changes since Marshall’s lifetime. The house contains many original Marshall family pieces and the largest collection of Richmond made federal furnishings. Your guided tour of Marshall’s 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 a popular location to live. You can enjoy a guided tour of the house, take a stroll through the colorful garden, visit the museum shop or play a round of quoits (John Marshall's favorite game).
