Rue William-Marsh is a very short cul-de-sac leading to a commercial property and a nearby private residence. It runs north of Rue de la Faune, east of Avenue Lapierre in the Saint-Émile district of Quebec City.

This very short street in the Saint-Émile district of Quebec City is named in honour of a successful businessman in the shoe industry. It was around 1888 that William A. Marsh opened a factory to make high quality boots and shoes in the Saint-Roch area of Quebec City. It was located in a large building on Rue Saint-Vallier Est between Rue Dorchester and Rue Narcisse-Belleau.
