This exhibit chronicles a period during the late 19th and early 20th century when, as Judith Rosbe’s book Marion in the Golden Age explains, “Marion became a treasured sanctuary from city life. Teeming with prosperity and the blossoming arts, this hamlet offered a setting so breathtaking that it inspired some of the world’s foremost creative minds . . . prominent artists, architects, writers and celebrities flocked to Marion.” Mark Twain, Henry James, President Grover Cleveland and Ethel Barrymore were but a few of the famous faces that graced Marion’s shores.
