In 1821, two men, Eber Baker and Alexander Holmes established the town of Marion. By 1840, 570 people resided in the town, and 6 years later, Marion boasted a population of 800, with 3 churches, a private academy, 2 newspapers, 21 stores, 1 sawmill, 1 fulling mill, and 1 carding mill.

Marion's biggest claim to historical fame came with the election of Warren G. Harding as the 29th President of the United States. Today, Harding's home is operated as a museum by the Ohio Historical Society. Harding's Tomb is also in Marion.
