Day 197 of 365…
Today I was driving past through the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site and felt like stopping in at The Marshall House for a few minutes and check it out. It had been years since I’ve wandered around this amazing home. This 1886 home boasts more than 8,200 square feet of beautifully restored charm. Gorgeous trim and finish work abound in this home.
This home housed the commanding officer of the Department of the Columbia. The most famous of these commanders was General George C. Marshall whom the house has been named after. General Marshall lived in this Queen Anne Victorian from 1936-1938 while commanding the Vancouver Barracks. This home was the “happening place” for social activity. Interestingly, this home is still the place to have an event or wedding in today’s modern era. I’ve attended weddings and parties here and they are always beautiful.
The Marshall House is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm and also on Saturday’s from 11am to 6pm when it isn’t being rented out. The Marshall House is located at 1301 Officers Row, Vancouver, WA and they can be reached at 360-693-3103.
