Genealogy and History


Marion, MI - Post Office (1940's) - Contributed by Paul Petosky

Marion is a thriving little village on the middle branch of the Muskegon river, and at the junction of the Ann Arbor and Manistee & Grand Rapids railroads, it being the eastern terminus of the latter line.  It is in the northeastern part of the county, thirty miles from Hersey, the county seat; was settled in 188- and incorporated in 1889. It has a well-constructed plant for the generation of electric light and power a mile west of town, where is also located a sawmill, a good bank, a pretty little opera house, a graded Union school and Catholic and Methodist churches. The general appearance of the village, with its clean streets, fully stocked stores and neat houses, is attractive and reassuring.
