Ketchum Park

Ketchum Park

In 1831, Sidney and George Ketchum located here on Rice Creek. This first settlement in Marshall consisted of a water-powered sawmill and log cabins. Until the twentieth century this was an important industrial area, containing at various times a malt house, plow foundry, and flour mill. The later was in operation until 1960. Ketchum Park is now a memorial to the first settlers of Marshall.
