Pony Express Statue, Marysville, KS

Marysville, Kansas



Marshall County Historic Courthouse Marysville, the county seat of Marshall [MS] county, is a beautiful and prosperous town located near the Big Blue River of northern Kansas.

Marysville began in the 1850's as a small settlement near a good crossing point on the river.  The Historic Trails Park west of town celebrates the many historic trails that met at the river here.  The park has a full-sized replica of a rope ferry built by local craftsmen.

Marysville was the first home station on the Pony Express route west of St. Joseph, Missouri.  The barn where the ponies were stabled is still standing and is now a museum.  A large bronze statue of a Pony Express horse and rider can be seen in the Pony Express Plaza which is located between Broadway and Highway 36 on 7th Street.  Visitors to Marysville can enjoy several other museums and an art center.

The Marysville Black SquirrelThe City Park at the south edge of town has a sod house, a rural schoolhouse, a steam locomotive, and a 1901 Union Pacific Depot.  A new theme playground was built in the park in 2001.  The park is also a good place to look for the famous black squirrels, they really are coal black.
