"My new fave small town" Marion by jayhawk2000

What a gem!

Without a doubt this was the find of my last trip.

Marion shoots right into my list of the best small towns in Kansas thanks to...

...a beautiful downtown full of historic buildings and local businesses

...interesting landmarks like a monumental courthouse, old churches and a meticulously restored train depot that now houses the town library

...many fine homes along brick streets atop a hill above a tree-lined river

And all this just a few minutes away from the gorgeous Flint Hills and between two lovely lakes
