The Mosby Heritage Area Association is pleased to announce a special event celebrating Chief Justice and Fauquier County native John Marshall.
During his 35 years as Chief Justice of the United States, John Marshall helped to shape the course of our young nation and define the role of the judiciary in American government. Learn about Marshall’s early life on the Virginia frontier, his military and legal career, and his role as a prominent Fauquier landowner. Have a glass of Madeira and play a game of quoits on the lawn, just like the Chief Justice did! Enjoy talks by Marshall experts, living history displays, and tour The Hollow, John Marshall’s childhood home. Speakers include Mark Greenough, historian at the Virginia State Capitol, local historian John Toler, and Cheryl Hanback Shepherd, architectural historian and restorer of The Hollow.
Talks will begin at 1 p.m. at Oak Hill in Marshall. The grounds, including the Marshall cemetery, will be open for tours. Following the presentations, guests are also invited to take a guided tour of The Hollow, located approximately 10 minutes away. Refreshments will be provided at Oak Hill.
