Marion Station, Maryland

Marion Station is a small town in Somerset County, Maryland that lies between Westover and Crisfield.  Originally, the Marion area was known as "Coulbourne Creek" and the center of activity lay several miles to the west, on the banks of the creek which flows into the Big Annemessex River.   Marion Station in 1920
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.

The area overflows with attractions and amenities, yet still keeps a quiet rural charm and a home-town feel.  

There are two Universities, a Community College, a Professional Baseball Team (the Delmarva Shore Birds), 3 State Parks, several shopping malls, and over 20 museums that uncover and interpret the culture and heritage of the Lower Shore. 

Attractions include Golfing, hiking, biking, bird-watching, swimming, fishing, boating, shopping, and site-seeing.  The links below will show just a few of the attractions and amenities the Lower Shore has to offer
