A history of Marine Township’s town hall
Saturday, March 05, 2022
When Minnesota became a territory Washington County was one of the original nine counties that formed the new territory. Soon after Minnesota became a state there were townships created within the county. Those townships needed meeting halls for business.
Marine Township was organized Oct. 20, 1858 and was larger than most, which comprised land in May and New Scandia townships, and soon the small hall that was constructed was outgrown and a new hall was to be built.
