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.

The Gallery in Marquand Presents:

“The Four Faces of Eve” – Artist, Dianne Dickerson June – August 2018

 With a title such as this, one immediately understands the Artist’s spiritual connection with life and her surroundings. “With Eve being the Alpha and Omega of all women, I wanted to create a representative exhibit that mirrored the mere existence of womanhood. The trials and triumphs, the subtle and the bold, the evolutionary and complacent roles we play in society,” said Dickerson.

Read more about the artist and show.

Dianne’s next exhibit will be staged at The Gallery inside Marquand City Hall and will run from June 16 – August 31, 2018. A “Meet the Artist” Reception is planned for June 16, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided, along with Special Music by Rev. Jan Mahannah. This programming is sponsored in part by MAC and MACAA. For additional information, please contact Denny Ward at: 573-561-6279.
