MARSHALL, the county seat, sections 4, 5, and 9 in Lake Marshall Township, platted in August 1872, incorporated as a village March 18, 1876, and as a city February 20, 1901, was named for Gov. Marshall, like Lake Marshall Township, in which it is situated. The first settlers began arriving in the early 1870s in an area chosen and platted by the Winona and St. Peter Railroad (which later became part of the Chicago and North Western Railway) as a site for a future village to be named Redwood Crossing; one of the first settlers was Charles H. Whitney, first postmaster when the post office opened in 1870 as Lake Marshall, who requested shortening the name to Marshall in 1872.
