Marquette Heights is such a great little town. Very family oriented. The best elementary and Junior high schools. Lots of community involvement.
Marquette Hights is a very nice small town, not much negati e to say about it. There are good people and the nosey People ( typical). Practically no crime is heard of. Though things could be maintained better in the city.
