Which Richmonder do you think has had the largest influence on the United States Government? ¬†It may be ¬†short list but at the top of that list, or at least near the top, has got to be John Marshall. ¬†On this episode Bobbie LeViness, Site Coordination of The John Marshall House at 818 E Marshall St discusses Marshall’s life.

Marshall built the house at 818 E Marshall St in 1790 ¬†and lived there until his death in 1835. ¬†Since the early 1900’s Preservation Virginia has owned the house and now runs it as a museum to the man who built it.

Marshall’s amazing life includes being an officer in the Continental Army and he was the first person, and still one of only a few, to serve in all 3 branches of the federal government. ¬†He is best know as the third confirmed Chief Justice of the United State. ¬†He is the longest serving and is known as the “Great Chief Justice”.

You are encouraged to visit the John Marshall House which closes during some of the colder months but reopens on Feb 28, 2014 and is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
