The County of Marion, located in the north-eastern part of the Texas state, was organized in 1860. It was named after Francis Marion, a military officer who participated in the American Revolutionary War. The county especially thrived when it served the Confederate government, as it supplied cannonballs and rifles. Agriculture, timbering, and tourism were all added and became the county’s economic mainstays. Its county seat celebrates an annual pilgrimage, where you can explore a three-day worth of tour on almost a hundred historical houses, statues, museums, and hotels. Other than that, you can also do a horseback riding tour at the Texas Trail Riding Co., a koi pond tour at Water Garden Gems, or you can raise your adrenaline at the San Antonio Raceway. Moreover, Latin American, Mexican, and Italian cuisines are all being served in this county.
