Constitutional Places: Marbury v. Madison

January 21st, 2014

Tomorrow, I initiate another rite of passage for law students, and will be teaching Marbury v. Madison. In honor of this solemn occasion, here is a photograph of the Forrest-Marbury House in Washington, D.C.,  which was acquired by William Mabury in 1800. The house would remain in the Marbury family for the next century. It currently serves as the Embassy of Ukraine, located at 3350 M Street NW in Georgetown (not far from the Key Bridge).


There is a plaque in the front commemorating the location:


And here is the original copy of the opinion.


Thanks to Max K. for the photographs of the house.
