Who We Are
Marquand is located in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, surrounded on three sides by the Mark Twain National Forest. Marquand was originally settled in 1804 by Capt. Henry Whitener and Michael Mouser, and was known as Whitener Settlement. The town was renamed in 1869 after Henry G. Marquand, a railroad administrator, donated $1,000 for the construction of a church. The town was incorporated in 1906. In 1924 a highway bridge was built over the Castor River.
1890: Asa Augusta Cook, was the first Marshall of Marquand. He and his wife Polly Ann first lived there after marriage. His uncle, Julius "Jude" Cook, was presiding judge of Madison County at Fredericktown (county seat) for 20 years. His wife, Lulu Cook, and their children ran a dairy farm for 30 years- selling milk, butter, and cream to the people of Fredericktown.
Two new bed and breakfasts now receiving guests!
Located at 116 North Harding, Aunt Kat's B & B is now open.
The Belmont Inn Bed & Breakfast at 107 East Morley - Proprietor: Dee Vitt
Sadly neglected, yet richly engrained into the history of this railroad boom town, The Belmont Inn takes its name from the service branch of the Missouri Pacific Railroad by the same identity. Built around 1890 of lumber milled within the community, the home has graced Marquand’s landscape for more than 100 years. Now, thanks to the insight of former Marquand resident, Dee (Mouser) Vitt, the home will hopefully remain an integral part of the community’s rich history for yet another century. Read more…
