Marshall County has lots to offer
So much to discover, not enough time.
Marshall County was settled in the early 19th century. The city of Plymouth was named the county seat in 1836, with the original town plat being made in 1834. Within 21 years the community boasted a telegraph line, a railroad and a wooden school building. By 1888, telephones, electric lighting and a water system were available to residents. Other Marshall County cities include Culver, home of the Culver Academies and the famous Black Horse Troop, located on beautiful Lake Maxinkuckee and Bourbon, which derives its name from the many settlers hailing from Bourbon County in Kentucky, was settle in 1853. Bremen, Argos, Lapaz and Tyner also have their own rich history. Spend a day visiting the many antique shops throughout the county.
