History & History Related Items

Marion history:

When Marion County was formed in 1824, Marion was named the County Seat. The County was named for General Francis Marion, better known as the Swamp Fox. A new post office was built in the early 1900's. It finally opened in December 1910. An addition was built in 1924. Another larger addition replaced the first remodel in 1936. During the 1980's, the building became available for purchase and the Marion Historical Society purchased the old post office building. It was renamed Heritage Hall by the society and also placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
