It owns three museums: The Honolulu House, The Grand Army of the Republic Hall, and Capitol Hill School.

Just A Little History

Due to its prime location, Marshall was set up for success when it was founded in 1830 by brothers Sidney and George Ketchum.  To give you reference, Calhoun County was established in 1829 and Marshall was made the county seat in 1831.

Most settlements at the time were founded for agricultural or industrial reasons, but the Ketchum brothers dreamed of a community of professional politicians, doctors, lawyers, and businessmen.
