More About George C Marshall International Center at Dodona Manor
Dodona Manor was built in the 1820s and although it is a part of Leesburg's Historic District, it was designated a National Historic Landmark because General George C. Marshall lived there from 1941-1959. The interior of the house contains almost 95 percent of the original furnishings, which makes this landmark an accurate and timeless museum. The garden, surrounding the house, is currently being restored.
The George C. Marshall International Center hosts many events, lectures and workshops for the public and rotates their exhibits. The exhibits are available for viewing during public tours or by appointment. It also prints a quarterly newsletter to keep members and the public informed of these happenings.
Savor a piece of history by visiting the George C. Marshall International Center at Dodona Manor and experience what it feels like to walk through the home of someone who has been described as the "Greatest American of the twentieth century."
Guest parking is available at 310-312 East Market Street, the Shops at Dodona Manor.
