Overview
More
The Marshall House (formerly Dodona Manor), is situated on 3.8 acres of gardens on the eastern end of Leesburg's Old and Historic District. The site is designated a National Historic Landmark as the residence of General George C. Marshall from 1941 until 1959. During his residency in the home, General Marshall served our nation as Chief of Staff of the Army, as Special Envoy to China, as Secretary of State, as President of the American Red Cross, and as Secretary of Defense. His career as a military officer spanned 44 years, including distinguished service in two world wars. General Marshall was the architect of the European Recovery Plan (The Marshall Plan), and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953. General Marshall was described as the "Greatest American of the twentieth century" by both Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.

The former home of General Marshall is beautifully restored to when the Marshall's lived there during the 1940s and 1950s. The docents are so knowledgeable and were great to talk to. If you love history and historic homes, this is definitely a place to visit!...More

My family enjoyed the tour of the Marshall House and learned so much. George C Marshall was a very interesting man. Loved the fact that his wife bought the property without talking to him first.

Though I came for a history project, I learned a lot more than I thought I would. Instead of dreading history, I found interest in learning about George C. Marshall. His life was unbelievable and I hope others come to learn the same.

An excellent and informative tour of the history of the house and that of General Marshall. One doesn't need to be interested in the military to really enjoy the experience. A must do while in the Leesburg area.
