Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Marsh House of La Fayette, officially the Marsh-Warthen House, is a house museum and events facility. This lovely antebellum home, located on North Main Street in La Fayette, sits across from Chattooga Academy and John B. Gordon Hall where Confederate General Braxton Bragg planned the Battle of Chickamauga. Union soldiers occupied the Marsh House during the war and left behind blood-soaked floors and hoof prints in the main hall. The house remained in the Marsh family for 150 years!
