Marsh, a lawyer, philologist, and diplomat, made a significant contribution to the conservation movement in America with his writings, especially MAN AND NATURE (1864). A later owner, Frederick Billings, President of the Northern Pacific Railroad Company, transformed the house into a Queen Anne style residence.
