About Us :
The Historical Society was formed in 1908 to provide a public link to Marshall County's past. It exists to collect, store, and preserve artifacts and documents that were used or manufactured in Marshall County. The Historical Society Museum building associated with the Society was opened to the public in 1987 at the current location in Marshalltown, Iowa. The museum displays the Society's collections that illustrate and interpret Marshall County's natural and human history. Several other sites are also associated with the Historical Society.
