Marshall County Courthouse
This Site is Available for Adoption
This county was named in honor of Chief
Justice Marshall. The surface of the county is generally
level, though there are places in which it may be called rolling.
About one half of the county is timbered land; the other half is oak
openings or barrens, interspersed with wet and dry prairies, which
are mostly of a small size, and in their vicinity are several small,
beautiful lakes. The soil, where the land was originally timbered,
is very rich and fertile, as also in the prairies. In the barrens it
is thinner, though yet a greater portion of them is well adapted to
wheat, oats, and vines. This portion of the soil improves with
continued cultivation. There are in this county rich beds of iron
ore. Marshall county has already become one of the leading
agricultural counties in Indiana. Plymouth, located in Centre
township, is the county seat. It is one of the most enterprising
towns in the State, has a population of over three thousand five
hundred, and is rapidly increasing in wealth and importance. It has
excellent railroad facilities, being located on the Pittsburgh, Fort
Wayne & Chicago and the Chicago, Cincinnati & Louisville
railroads. Bourbon is another smart town in this county. It is
located on the railroad first mentioned. Tyner City and Argos are
also smart towns on the latter road.
