Join the 1888 Crew

Marceline is the story of the American Railroad. We were founded on March 6, 1888 along the Santa Fe line and the railroad truly shaped our story. Join our ‘railroad crew’ as an homage to our railroad heritage.

For 10 years, the Downtown Marceline Foundation has undertaken a focused effort to revitalize Main Street USA. Individuals, businesses, organizations, property owners and the City of Marceline have partnered to improve our city center. The results are clear, and the progress is exciting: Facade improvements. New businesses. Tree plantings. Self-guided tours. Energized events, and reimagined parks.

Your donation will help the Foundation continue our mission to revitalize Marceline and help make our community a great place to live and visit.
