Marion is a very small town. Everyone knows each other, so gossip spreads quickly. Regardless of that, we're all pretty friendly and social with one another. The diner in town is great, and we even have a tattoo place right on main street.

I love where I live. I grew up there, and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. We are a town that cares about each other and will support one another during times of trouble. The school system is dedicated to helping their students be successful. Even though we are a really small town I know we have potential to do great things!!
Great place if you want your child to have a close relationship with teachers and staff. Amazing music program. Small town with not a lot of sites but great to settle for a quiet and peaceful life.
