The barn in Marceline was the setting for Walt’s first venture as a showman. He dressed some of his pets and farm animals in costumes and announced the “Disney Circus” to neighborhood kids charging 10 cents for admission.
E.P. Ripley Park has been the heart of Marceline since 1898. The city takes great pride in it's maintenance and the residents utilize it on a daily basis. Elias Disney would occasionally fiddle in the park's bandstand while the Disney children found refuge from the hot summer sun under the dappled leaves of it's majestic trees.
