Marysville was settled before Ohio was even a state, belonging instead to the Northwest Territory. The town was officially founded in 1819 by Samuel W. Cuthbertson, and named for his young daughter Mary. The town rapidly began to grow and achieve prominence, and would later be selected as the seat of Union County.

The Jim Simmons Trail runs for miles along the creek for runners, walkers, and cyclist to enjoy. The creek is excellent for fishing as well.

Ohio is an epic place to rent an RV, as it is home to some pretty famous parks, forests, and natural sites.
