Beschreibung:

Marion has contributed to the progress of the United States in industry, nation building, and politics unlike any other community its size. Named in honor of General Francis Marion, the town of Marion was established in 1822 and soon after became the county seat. Located at the center of the agriculture-based county, it became a main stopover for supplies and social events, encouraging bustling commerce and industry. Edward Huber designed revolutionary harvesting equipment and supplied capital for the Marion Power Shovel company, whose power shovels dug the Panama Canal and whose creepers move NASA's rockets. Today, Marion's contributions are appreciated in many facets of American life.
