Thomas Marshall House Summer Schedule


The Thomas Marshall House in North Manchester is changing the hours it is open to the public to accommodate community summer activities.  In July, instead of being open on the July 3, the house will be open on Saturday, July 9, from 1 – 4 p.m.  In August, instead of being open August 6, it will be open Saturday, August 13, from 1 – 4 p.m. to welcome Funfest crowds.


Marshall was born in North Manchester and became governor of Indiana and Vice President of the United States.  His birth house, on north Market Street next to the library, was completely restored and furnished by the North Manchester Historical Society to its 1854 condition.  Trained docents tell about the house and Marshall family on the first Saturday of each month from April through December except as noted above, and for tours by arrangement.  Call 260-982-0672 for information.
