After restoration, the site will be sold and developed into a major attraction or job-producing employer yet-to-be determined.

Many of these companies are continually expanding, hiring and reinvesting in our community.

Recreation: Recreational opportunities abound in Marysville. Marysville City Park is a regional destination and is home to numerous events each year.
