The Marshall Place is named after Chief Justice John Marshall, who stories say, used the original log structure as his hunting lodge. Some of these logs have been exposed in the kitchen area of this circa 1790's home. From the book, When The Courthouse Burned, which was written to preserve the history of Buckingham County after the Courthouse burned in 1869, the authors say that the first addition to the structure of Marshall Place could be dated back as far as the 1750's because of the types of nails, weatherboarding and so forth that are part of the structure. For the historic purist, restoring the Marshall Place could be a very exciting adventure into the times of the birth of our country as many of the original hardwood floors, windows, doors and such are still intact.
