Long Description:

Marsh-Warthen House c. 1836

The Marsh-Warthen House, circa 1836, was built by Spencer Stewart Marsh, a prominent and influential merchant and statesman who donated land for John B. Gordon Hall. Marsh, with two other businessmen, founded Trion Factory, a major cotton mill. In 1863 the Marshes sought refuge in Cassville and returned after the war to find blood stained floors and hoof marks from`Federal Cavalry horses in the hallway. After remaining in the Marsh family for only 150 years, the house was owned by the Clements, descendants of a Walker County pioneer family. This property is listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.

Note: there is also a second historic marker erected by the Chickamauga Campaign Heritage Trail, ( Army of Tennessee site #2 - The Marsh House) and is located near by.
