Posted Friday, March 1, at 11:35 AM
As a new resident, I am not aware of a lot of history in Marshall but am very interested in learning about it. I recently learned the story of a man whom many of you knew. For those of you who do not know of Harold L. Lickey, I would like to share what I have learned about his story and accomplishments. I was totally inspired and blown away when I learned of the legacy he left behind!...

In my blog, I will highlight the historic places in Marshall and Saline County; I will discuss the square, local businesses, different groups in Marshall such as the MDC, MCC, Historic Society etc., festivals and events and highlight improvements to the city. I will also discuss the desire of residents to improve the city and its buildings and neighborhoods, among other related topics. My goal is to promote community interest in preserving the city and to also raise awareness about what the city of Marshall has to offer. I hope my blog generates positive and constructive conversation and helps to raise awareness about the great stuff we have. Since moving to Marshall almost a year ago, I have had several discussions with new and old residents of Marshall about people's desire to improve the city. It's not about expanding the city or bringing in more franchises; Marshall has a lot of small town charm that really is a hidden gem with a lot of potential. Some of the historic buildings, open farmland, great parks and local businesses, just to name a few, are what was so attractive to my family that influenced our move here. Marshall's small town, farm community atmosphere is where I want to raise my family. We moved here for a reason; this place has amazing potential to stay a great small town!
