Marion County was established in 1817 and was named after General Francis Marion, a Revolutionary War leader in South Carolina. The county seat is Jasper. During the Civil War, the presence of the railroad and the major turnpikes made it a place that Confederate and Federal armies passed through. The county has also been notable for its coal and iron industries and still is home to the Lodge Cast Iron manufacturing firm.
