The Town of Marion was founded in 1852 and is located in Plymouth County in Southeastern Massachusetts.
The Town was originally named Sippican which was an Indian tribe that once lived there. Instead of keeping the name they chose to change it to Marion in honor of General Francis Marion who was the Revolutionary War hero from South Carolina.
