About Marquette, KS

Nestled in the beautiful smoky valley in central Kansas, Marquette was settled in the 1860's and 1870's by Swedish immigrants and Civil War veterans. The town started with a flourmill on the banks of the Smoky Hill River in 1873 and by 1874, a town charter was signed, and Marquette began to grow.

In 1905, a devastating tornado destroyed most of the western half of the town, killing 31 people. But the determination to survive and rebuild was very strong. And rebuild they did. Marquette boasts a very historic downtown of Victorian style buildings that are on the Kansas State Register of Historic Places, and have been restored to their original Swedish influenced, Victorian splendor. The town also has many beautiful Victorian homes that survived the tornado and have been restored. Marquette has maintained a sense of history while moving forward into the 21st century.
