Activities/Attractions: Located among the rolling hills and piney woods of rural northeast Texas, Marshall is centrally located within Harrison County. In fact, it is the largest city within the county and serves as the county seat.

Marshall was settled in 1839, was incorporated in 1840, and became the county seat in 1842. The City of Marshall was named in honor of Chief Justice John Marshall. Although it was a frontier community, Marshall soon established itself as a leader within the State of Texas. For when Texas seceded from the Union in 1861, it was one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the state.
