Thomas David Bullard 1930 - 2023
The Board of The Marshall House, Inc. expresses profound regret at the loss of David Bullard, friend and mentor.
David Bullard died February 19, 2023 at his home The Marshall House.
David's inspiration led to renewed action and remembrance of the events of America’s War of Independence. Many visitors to the house were fortunate to learn from him stories of 250 years of history.
The Marshall family and The Marshall House, Inc. will continue to tell of the important events that occurred in old Saratoga during the Revolutionary War and in the times that followed.
Visitors to this website are invited to view the video narrative about David Bullard and his house. This video was completed a short time ago.
The second symposium Women in War was held in May 2023. We are grateful to Historians of Saratoga Town and County, and County governance for embracing this heritage.
Opportunities to visit the house will be posted on this website.
Please note the mailing address will now be P.O. Box 114, Schuylerville, NY 12871.

Meet the Baroness - Saturday, November 27th, 2021
The historic Marshall House, Witness to History in Schuylerville, New York will hold a special open house on Thanksgiving Saturday, November 27th. The house played an important role in the area’s Revolutionary War history, serving as a field hospital for the British troops and the German soldiers who fought with them in the Saratoga campaign. The family of the German General Friedrich Riedesel had accompanied Burgoyne to the battlefront.
The Baroness Frederika Riedesel (as portrayed by Debbie Bailey) will greet visitors and tell the story of how she with her three children endured bombardment at the Marshall House during the American siege during the Battles of Saratoga in 1777. The Baroness will also describe how she introduced the custom of the Christmas tree to North America, and docents will explain details of the historic house.
The Marshall House is situated just north of the Village of Schuylerville, NY. Visitors will be welcomed in groups of fifteen at 1PM, 2PM and 3PM. There will be valet parking at the house. A donation of $10 per person is requested to further the educational outreach of The Marshall House. Pre-registration is recommended. On the home page, click on Special Event Saturday, November 27th.
