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!
