1. The John Marshall House Marker
Inscription. Built in 1790, this brick house reflects the late 18th century Federal period style. It was home to the Chief Justice whose principles shaped our Federal government and established the Supreme Court we know today. The structure houses an unusually large number of Marshall and family related objects that provide visual interpretation of Richmond life in the late 1790's to the mid 1830's. Follow the brick path around to the left and enter the world of John Marshall.

By Southern Bargain House, Richmond, Va., circa 1910
6. Home of Chief Justice Marshall, (9th and Marshall Sts)., Richmond, Va.
Situated on the N.W. corner of 9th & Marshall Streets, in the same square with the new 'John Marshall High School.' It was built by Chief Justice (then General) Marshall and occupied by him from 1795 until his death in 1835. Though the spacious grounds which once surrounded it have been greatly reduced in area, the residence itself is unchanged, except for the inroads made upon it by the 'corroding tooth of time.' No more venerable and historic relic, of such general interest to all Americans, is to be found in the South. VCU Libraries Digital Collections - Rarely Seen Richmond
