This is a tribute cache to Richard Fox, the Marion Parks and Recreation Director that approves all the Marion caches that get placed. He has never said no to Team Marion, so we felt this cache was long overdue.
The community was named after Francis Marion, who was a hero of the Revolutionary War. The area was selected in 1839 to be the first county seat of Linn County, Iowa. After years of debate over moving the county seat to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, it was put to a vote in 1919. The vote was 9,960 in favor of moving the seat and 4,823 not in favor.
