The Marsh Mansion featured hand-carved doors and window casings, Corinthian columns, four solid bronze chandeliers, and eight marble fireplaces. A walnut staircase and woodwork throughout the house was carved by a Swiss craftsman brought to Dubuque just for this job. French window glass and mirrors and a double front door of carved walnut were also features. The mansion was razed in 1965 to make room for the expanding CHURCH OF THE NATIVITY.
