The Marsh House of La Fayette

Visit Us Donate

Come stroll the lovely grounds of the Marsh House (circa 1836) in La Fayette and experience the antebellum era as docents provide house history and information about 19th century furnishings, many of which are original to the house.

The Marsh House of La Fayette is a house museum and events venue owned by Walker County, GA. Volunteers under the Board of Trustees, part of the Walker County Historical Society, support, maintain, and develop this lovely antebellum house and grounds through historical tours, community events, fund raising projects, and rental income.
