THE LEGENDS OF MARYSVILLE
Each October, The Legends of Marysville seeks to uncover the mysteries, legends, and lore of the Shady City. Conducted by The Silver Scene Players in partnership with the City of Marysville and Team Marysville, this family-friendly walking tour leads visitors on a journey of mystery and the supernatural as special characters return from the past to recount spooky tales about Marysville's most prominent landmarks. During the approximate 1.5 hour, ½ mile walk, a city that is steeped in history (and rich in spirit)… is revealed. What better way to experience Marysville's history than to possibly come face to face with a spirit from the past?
