Visit the home of "the greatest man never to be President."

The property surrounding the John Marshall house used to sit on an entire city block. It had a two-story law office, a stable, and detached outbuildings. Inside the home, there was a kitchen and laundry. They also owned a small orchard and several vegetable gardens. The home is a Federal-style brick house built for the 4th United States Supreme Court Justice, John Marshall. He lived there for 45 years.

Eventually, the property was reduced to a small corner lot. It is close to large office buildings now and has a brick retaining wall with a white picket fence on top. Situated in a very urban setting, it is nice to see the gardens and trees as buffer from the harsh modern building and roads around this historic home. Tours are available Friday - Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday from 12 pm - 5 pm. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, the John Marshall House has been a treasured National Historic Landmark since 1975.
