I personally used to work at the Fort in high school and still love it there. History comes to life in this house, and all around the Fort. The Marshall House has so many fun aspects (the ceiling frescos, the to-the-floor windows, the gold-dust and ruby-flake painting in the dining room). Best of all is that tours are always free....

I've had several events here and am always impressed. Beautiful home, the pics turn out amazing and the surrounding area is tranquil and peaceful. Great for family reunion, anniversary, wedding, etc. Value was good last time I checked but it has been a couple years. Little piece of history in the 'Couve.

The George Marshall House is on officer's row in Fort Vancouver Park, a 20 minute ride from Portland, Oregon. We had a knowledgeable volunteer docent who described the period in which General Marshall and his wife lived in this house. It has wonderful memorabilia and we learned a lot about Marshall. Highly recommended. There is a restaurant in the Grant... More

As an european family we all know the Marshall's plan that USA activated after the second world war in europe. This man gained the peace Nobel price and it is the only price assigned to a military general. A free entrance and a free guided tour is provided by a volunteer so keen to explain all aspect of the house.... More

There are a lot of neat old buildings in the area and it was fun that one was open for a tour. The top floor is private offices but you can walk around the bottom floor and the stairs. This does not take long and is worth a stop.

We had an excellent guide who was very knowledgable about Mr. Marshall and his time in Vancouver. He shared little nuances about the property. DON'T MISS the newspaper that announces President Lincoln's death. It's in the office area

A beautifully restored house filled with history... the volunteers are well versed in the different areas of the house and it has been known to host many great events. If you are a military buff, read up on Marshall and take a visit. You won't regret.
