Photographs of the Marshall Home Interior (1930s)

Yesterday we posted a photograph of the exterior of the Marshall residence located off Green Street in Old Washington, Kentucky. Today we have interior photographs taken around 1935. Presumably the interior has changed much since then, but the basic layout and features should still be the same.

These photos are of the main house. The entire homestead consists of the main house, a slave quarters, and various outlying buildings.

The Marshall home is composed of two floors with a balcony on the front of the house. This is a photograph of the staircase leading to the second floor.

The Marshall residence has three chimneys on the main house. This photograph is of one of the many fireplaces situated throughout the house.

A photograph of a much more elaborate fireplace and mantel. What I'd give just to have a look at the paintings over the mantel. They're obviously quite old. Note the disrepair. As I stated previously, these photographs are from the 1930s. The home today is still in use and well-maintained by descendents of the Marshalls.

I would assume they are family portraits, but of course the only two from the family I know of is Thomas Marshall and John Marshall and it doesn't look like their more famous portraits.

I enlarged the art work. The one on the left is a portrait of a woman, the one in the center is a landscape and the one on the right is a portrait of a young man
