Tour of the George C. Marshall House 

Friday August 10, 2018  10:30 am 

Marshall House, Leesburg, VA 

Formerly known as Dodona Manor, this early 1800 home was General Marshall’s primary residence. It was from here that Marshall earned the rank of Five-Star General, served as Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, President of the American Red Cross, and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Much more than a house tour, this will be a great opportunity to learn about this American statesman. 

 

Tour Fee:  $15
