Wandered centuries ago by the Potawatomi Native Americans, Marshall County has a history as vast as the mastodons that once roamed its plains. Each town in this picturesque county has contributed to the development of Indiana, from the town of Bourbon, always on the frontier of industry, to Bremen, often praised as a perfect American town. Discover how the city of Plymouth was founded out of necessity to become the county seat and one of Indiana's treasures, and hear about the lost towns that have faded to mere memories with the passage of time. Local journalist Amy Lant Wenger chronicles the wonderful history of Marshall County, still influenced by its Native American heritage and graced with that special charm unique to Indiana.
