OTHER INFORMATION

The county seat, also named Marion, was the home of Ohio's eighth president, Warren G. Harding. It is the center of one of the major popcorn-producing areas in the United States. The city also maintains a branch of the Ohio State University.

Chief industries in the county are; construction and mining machinery, metals, rubber, food, brake shoes, refrigeration equipment, surgical gloves, animal feeds, tin cans, malleable castings, and hogs.

Probate Judge has birth, marriage & probate records; County Health Department has death records; Clerk of Courts has divorce & civil court records; County Recorder has land records.
