Marshall County, Kansas--Trails to the Past

Welcome to Marshall County

Trails to the Past

Marshall County is located in the northeastern part of Kansas, with its northern border on the Nebraska state line. It's an original county, having been established in 1855. Marshall County is bordered by Gage and Pawnee counties (Nebraska) to the northwest and northeast; Nemeha County (Kansas) to the east; Pottawatomie County to the south; and Riley and Washington counties to the southwest and west. The largest city and county seat is Marysville. Marshall County was named for Frank Marshall, an early settler and member of the first Kansas Legislature. Marshall County is located on the Old Oregon Trail, the Mormon Trail, and Pony Express route. The old Pony Express station in Marysville is now a museum, and the Guittardstation, located near Beatty, is commemorated with a historic marker.
