The Marshall House is located on Officer's Row and was built in 1886 as the quarters for the Post Commander. This house was named for the first Five-Star General George C. Marshall who served as the commander of Vancouver Barracks from 1936 - 1938. This elegant Queen Anne Victorian style home is available for public tours as well as for private special events. Volunteers are currently needed to greet visitors, give tours around the main floor of this historic building, answer the phone, and decorate the house for different seasons.

The Marshall House is open to the public Monday through Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. unless a private event reserves the building for their use.
