The county seat of Marion County. Originally it was called Marion Center, to indicate its central location in the county. It is at the confluence of the Cottonwood River, Luta and Clear Creeks, which are large streams of never-failing, pure, spring-fed water. The town is a thriving, go-ahead place, and has a full complement of business houses, schools, secret societies, churches, banks, water works, an electric light plant, an opera house, and four newspapers (one daily and three weekly), and is altogether a healthy, growing place. Population about 3,000
