Lovely small town. Adorable downtown area with many locally owned shops. People are very friendly, the town takes care of the landscaping an the city is beautiful. The town area has all the shops and restaurants one needs. The schools are very good and the families get involved with many activities! Overall, a great place to live and work. Easily commutable to bigger cities around Michigan, not too far away from the beaches of Lake Michigan as well!

I love that Marshall is a smaller town and everyone knows each other but is big enough that you have everything right there that you need! The fountain is in the center of the town and is always lit up with beautiful lights. There is benches all around it that you can go sit at and enjoy the display anytime of the year! The town also always goes all out for every Holiday and it is magnificent! I really have nothing bad to say about Marshall at all, it's a beautiful place!
Good city to be at. Great to raise a family. Good schools. Good food. Nice older homes and architecture. Safe community with a good public safety department. Close to other cities like Battle Creek, and Jackson. I would live here for quite some time before thinking of moving away of going to another location within the state of Michigan. The commute times can be very long and there is little night life to be had here. These are small disservices when it comes to an excellent, historic city that one could call home.
