    Marion County Reviews

    1 review
    Marion, KY Is a small rural town that is family-friendly, quaint, and religiously-minded. It has a 50's kind of atmosphere and vibe towards this day. It relies primarily upon family and friend connections, small-business, and maintaining moral values that are traditional and religious in nature.

    It could use more youth friendly and job-creating infrastructure to compliment it.
