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.
Briefly in the 1970s, the Marsh House was the American Victorian Museum, founded by Carol and David Fluke, (owners/funding,) Ruthe Hamm, (owner/funding,) and co-founders David Osborne and Charles Woods.
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.
