I love the fact that all of my neighbors are so friendly and helpful and nobody cares about the color of anybodies skin. We just all get together sometimes and have big block parties where everybody brings a covered dish and we play games, talk and all the kids get along so well together. It's just amazing to me how peaceful it is here and I love it!!! I would,however, love to see more places for families to go and have fun. We have a movie theater and a few parks but it would be nice if we had a small amusement park or a go-cart place or even a water park would be awesome in this little town. That's the only bad thing about living in Marshall, Texas is that families have to drive to other towns to have fun like that on the weekends. If they could bring some of that awesomeness here this town, in my opinion, would be perfect.

Marshall is a small town with lots of chicken and donuts! The population is around 25,000 and Marshall cater’s to East Texas Baptist University students! I would love to see this small town grow with businesses and entertainment!
I lived in Marshall, Texas all of my life and it is an amazing town. Sure it has its up and downs, but what place doesn't? If you enjoy living in a small time then you will enjoy living here. I guess my only complaint would be the lack of a decent mall and food places, but I can find all of those things in the next town over so I really can't complain. The school district is amazing and I've learned a a lot from the compassionate and dedicated teachers. Even when I first started school at five years old I knew M.I.S.D was the school district for me. My favorite thing about Marshall is going downtown during the fall and winter time to experience the annual Wonderland of Lights, which is a very popular attraction that people who don't even live in Marshall out to see. Marshall is a very lovely town that I have enjoyed living in.
