Property Remarks

You say you live in a what?!!! At the end of a quiet street on almost one acre of grass, flower beds and a picket fence, you'll find this beautifully restored old church building which is now a gorgeous home with over 5,000 square feet of living space. All of the original 14 stained glass windows are still in place, along with the wooden ceiling and hardwood floors. The limestone fireplace in the great room (former sanctuary) is not only beautiful but also can be used for heating. The kitchen, located on what was once the stage, has everything you could wish for including plenty of cabinet space, a built in gas range, two ovens and a large island with seating on one side. The master bedroom will cause you to wake up inspired every morning with six stained glass windows and a stairway to the bell tower (which is now storage). There is an additional bonus room on the main floor that could be used as a bedroom or office space. The basement fellowship hall is now a huge game room. There are still Sunday school rooms in the basement that have not been touched and still have the old murals painted on the walls, ready for you to make use of the space however you choose.

Marion –History

The City of Marion was founded in June of 1860 when settlers in five covered wagons were told by surveyors at Emporia that there was good, virgin farmland about 60 miles to the southwest. The surveyors called it the best land in the territory.

One of the travelers in the group, George Griffith was the first to build a shanty on the site where the Santa Fe Depot (Now the Santa Fe Depot Library) stands and was also the first in Marion County to file for a homestead, doing so on August 8, 1860.

The official naming of the settlement came when a post office was established here in 1862. Because the settlement was located near the center of the county, the name Marion Centre seemed appropriate.

The population of Marion Centre increased at a faster rate after the Civil War ended. William Billings is credited with building the first stone residence.

Marion Centre had increased in population by the early 1870’s to a point where it could file for incorporation as a third class city.

Two changes took place in the 1880’s regarding Marion Centre. First the "Centre" was dropped from the town name. The Post Office has used the name Marion since October 15, 1881. The city adopted it officially on January 17, 1882. Second, because population increased, the city became eligible for second class status. Therefore on May 25, 1888, Governor John A. Martin proclaimed it a second class city.

Marion has the distinction of being the oldest settlement in Marion County and boasts a population today of 2,110 residents. Each year Marion commemorates this fact with the celebration of "Old Settlers Day".
