"One of America's best preserved Victorian towns" Marshall by SilverVelvet
Marshall Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 57 photos
About three hours east of Chicago or two hours west of Detroit, there is a special little gem that is one of America's best preserved small towns from the Victorian era. The railroads were the backbone of the town's wealth and its secret status as a well known stop on the underground railroad held a special place in the town's heart.
In addition, the people were so confident that Marshall would become the state capital that they built the governor's mansion before the election. Imagine their surprise when they lost by one vote. Today, the mansion is one of nearly 150 beautifully preserved homes and public buildings. Welcome to Marshall, Michigan.
