Marshall Hall (amusement park)

Marshall Hall (amusement park)

Marshall Hall was an amusement park at Marshall Hall, Maryland, next to the Potomac River, more or less across from Mount Vernon, Virginia, the home of George Washington. The site of a small amusement park dating from the 1890s, a modern amusement park was constructed there in 1966 and operated until 1980. It was a favorite of Washington, DC residents who often arrived by excursion boat.

The Marshall Hall Development Corporation tore down the amusement park structures along with most of the farm buildings to make room for a more modern amusement park.[when?] The large brick stable and brick carriage house that once stood there were demolished to give way to a picnic pavilion. All that is left standing is Marshall Hall, the shell of the colonial home of the original Marshall family.
