|Marion is a rural town six miles miles
Crisfield and thirty miles from the large city of Salisbury. It
is a quiet, agricultural community with rivers and creeks winding
throughout. The old historic district and main street still
exist and are currently undergoing renovations.
Once the railroad to Crisfield was put through
in 1866, there was a need to erect a train station in
Marion. John C. Horsey donated the right of way for the
railroad and a train station and named the depot after his daughter,
Marion. Thus a thriving village grew up around "Marion
Station" and it later became the largest strawberry producing
area in the world.
Today the downtown area of Marion
Station looks much as it did 100 years ago. You can still see
the old buildings, bank and train station. Within a 30 minute
drive one can be in the City of Salisbury which has every
convenience of a large city.
