The E.A. and Rebecca (Johnson) Marsh House is a historic dwelling located in Grinnell, Iowa, United States. Marsh was a jeweler and a leading businessman in the city. His wife, Rebecca Penrose Johnson, bought the property in 1891. Her father was a successful businessman who amassed his own fortune, which is probably why the property was bought in her name. The two-story frame structure features a hipped roof with cross gables and a corner tower. It is one 19 Queen Anne houses in Grinnell with a corner tower. Unlike most of the others, it has maintained a high degree of historic integrity. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.
