Marquette is located in western McPherson [MP] county between highway K-4 and the Smoky Hill river. Settled by immigrants from Sweden, the town was chartered February 9, 1874.

        The downtown has a wonderful block of late nineteenth century stores that have been restored and repainted to their original colors; each is marked with the year it was constructed. In addition to the neat old stores, there are a couple of nice murals in the downtown area.
