Since losing its bid to become the state capital of Michigan in 1847, Marshall has won many awards and accolades. Home to the largest national historic landmark district in the country in the small urban category, Marshall has been called a "textbook of American architecture" by the National Parks Service. Marshall was one of the first four Michigan Main Street Communities and is the site of the oldest county fair in the state. In recent years, the community has been named one of the "dozen distinctive destinations" by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Debbie Pardoe, a native of Detroit and a graduate of Ferris State University, moved to Marshall in 1972 and immediately began collecting Marshall memorabilia, focusing on postcards. Pardoe's collection now numbers well over 700, and she continues to acquire new additions. Susan Collins, also a transplant to Marshall, moved to town in 1973 and married the town historian and promoter, John Collins, in 1977. She is the author of Marshall in the Images of America series. Pardoe and Collins have been friends and shared a love of Marshall and its history for more than three decades.
