About Our Guide
Meika Downey serves as the Education Manager of the John Marshall House. Prior to joining Preservation Virginia, Meika completed her Master's in History and Public History from Virginia Commonwealth University. Though a trained 20th Century historian, Meika has enjoyed stepping back into the Federal and Early Republic eras at the John Marshall House through not only the house's architecture, furniture, and decorative arts, but more importantly, through stories of the people who lived and labored on the property between 1790 and 1835.
