Open House

Historians, professional and amateur, and students..., everyone’s particular interest is satisfied when visiting The Marshall House. Imagine treading on the very floor trod by the intrepid Baroness Frederika Riedesel or looking into the corner of the old stone cellar where she took refuge as cannon balls crashed on the floor above her during the horrendous week preceding the surrender of Burgoyne’s army.

The Marshall House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a private residence whose owners open their home to organized groups by appointment. Arrangements may be made by email to info@themarshallhouse.org or by telephoning 518-695-3765. A $10 donation per adult is suggested. Children are free.
