Stop by the Visitor's Center
This old log cabin was built in the 1840's and was located south of Marshall.
It was donated to the city in 1993 and became the Marshall Vistor's Center.
If you are ever in Marshall be sure and stop and browse around inside.
Right before Christmas you will find Santa there.

The Marshall Main Street...
The Marshall Main Street Program will host a Smithsonian traveling exhibit called 'Yesterdays Tomorrows' September 14th through October 16th. Visit their web site at www.yesterdaystomorrows.org. A Planning Committee has been formed to ensure the exhibits success.
The Planning Committee is still recruiting volunteers for the following areas: PR-Publicity and Grand Opening activities, Volunteer Coordination, Exhibit Installation and Local Program Development.
This program 'Museum on Main Street' links cultural resources at national, state and local levels to bring high quality exhibitions and public programs to smaller towns across the United States. 'Yesterdays Tomorrows' uses popular culture objects such as toys, books, movie stills, World's Fair memorabilia, car designs, advertisements and models of architectural designs to examine ways in which Americans of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries have envisioned the future.
If you do not go to Marshall...
If you do not go to Marshall during a festival there is really NOTHING to do -- maybe that is the beauty of it!
We went for what was billed as the 'Old National Road Festival.' There were about four booths and two food stands. BUT.... the people of the town realized we were there with a man who is making publicity by walking all of Route 40 (the Old National Road) and we met the mayor, the development group, and many others! They showed us many of the historic sites.
When I get photos developed I will update and let you know of their chataqua event this fall!
Take a walk around the square.
The middle of town is the courthouse square.The Clark County Courthouse was built in 1904 after fire distroyed the previous one in 1902.
