History

The Martin Luther Marsh House's architecture and engineering were significant during the California Gold Rush period of 1850-1874. The single family home is of Italianate Style-Victorian design. It bears a hip roofed cupola and the windows are arched.[1]

Restoration

Briefly in the 1970s, the Marsh House was the American Victorian Museum,[2] founded by David Osborne and Charles Woods.[3]

Recent restoration included replacement of the rotting quoins with redwood duplicates, a new roof, rain gutters, and exterior painting in historical colors, including white trim. It's situated in a park-like setting.[2]

Landmark

On 19 January 1972, the Martin Luther Marsh House was designated a California Point of Historical Interest No. P241.[4]

Less than a year later, on 11 April 1973, this Nevada County building was designated as a landmark by the National Register of Historic Places.[5]
