Marion County, located squarely in the "heart of Ohio," is home to the city of Marion, the villages of Caledonia, Green Camp, LaRue, Morral, New Bloomington, Prospect, and Waldo, and other communities. While the villages each have their own unique identities and histories, they all share the common trait of simply being good places to call home. Marion County shares memories of the churches, schools, businesses, and people that make these communities special.
