I started Spooky Marion in September of 2008 with my nephew. The project began as a result of our mutual interest in Marion’s history and our belief that, if one is willing to look for them, even small towns like Marion are full of interesting stories. While the truth of the stories themselves may occasionally be debatable, I have made every effort to cite the sources of the information used to create this site. This site is also a work in progress, and I will continue to update it as I dig up stories about Marion’s spooky side.

  1. I was born and grew up in Marion and am now living in California. I have my own video production company called Image Design Video. I ran across your website and found it very interesting, especially after having lived in Marion. Has anyone ever asked about making a documentary based in the stories you have collected?

  2. Thank you for including a picture and history of the old “Wood and Coal Stoves” building. I’ve done some research and can’t find any mention of it as “Hill School.” I’ll keep looking into it. 😉 Great site!

  3. Hello. Marion is my hometown. I’m almost 64 and lived in Fair Park until my freshman year in 1971-72 when we moved out to Pleasant school district. I remember when I was in grade school, there was a rumor about a wolfman running around Marion. Scared the bejesus out of me. I didn’t want to go outside. Have you ever heard this story?

    1. Yes I have! I have even met a guy who claims to know the story behind it, but he won’t let me publish it because it would embarrass the man behind the “wolfman” incidents.
