Vermillion, a village of Noble township, Marshall county, is located 28 miles southeast of Marysville, the county seat, on the Missouri Pacific R. R. and the Black Vermillion river. It is the trading point for a large section of farming country, has banking facilities, grain elevators, a newspaper, schools, churches, express and telegraph offices, and an international money order postoffice with four rural mail routes. In 1910 the population was 366.

Among those who located on the site of Vermillion as early as 1860 were Theodore Collier, J. E. Watson, G. R. Kelley, W. H. Dickinson, R. Shields and A. Dilley. The town was located in 1869, the original site containing 240 acres, owned as follows: The railroad company, 40 acres; Theodore Collier, 40 acres; and G. R. Kelley, 160 acres. Collier and Kelley each gave half their interests to the railroad company, which laid off the town and built a depot and side track. The first building was erected in 1870 by W. H. Dickinson. The postoffice was established the same year with Theodore Collier as postmaster.
