  • Docents were not well spoken even though they knew the material. There were 3 and each was talking about only one room and only 1 of them spoke loud enough to be heard 6 feet away.  more »

  • How did I grow up in Richmond and not come to this! Awesome home in great shape with knowledgeable guides! Parking can be hard, it is worth it. The home is mostly original and has many original furnishings.
  • The John Marshall house is structurally the same house from when it was originally built in the 1700’s. The History Guides here at this house have a plethora of knowledge that they share with each tour. The History Guides will ensure that all your questions are answered with the correct questions. If you are in the Richmond area I recommend that you stop by this House to learn more information about John Marshall and all the things that he did for the United States.
