Marquette, one of the important little incorporated cities of McPherson county, is located on the Smoky Hill river and the Missouri Pacific R. R., 16 miles northwest of McPherson, the county seat. It has 2 banks, a flour mill, 2 weekly newspapers (the Tribune and the Journal), good public schools and substantial church edifices. The town is supplied with express and telegraph offices, and has an international money order postoffice with two rural routes. The population, according to the census of 1910, was 715. Marquette was laid out in 1874 by a town company, of which S. J. Darrah was president. The first building was erected by J. A. Foster, who was the first postmaster. A water mill was built by H. S. Bacon at a cost of $10,000. This locality has been unfortunate in a number of instances in its history, when it has suffered from wind storms and cyclones. There is not, however, a more prosperous section of agricultural country in the state.
