    Falls County History

    (1936 Centennial - Highway Marker)
    FALLS COUNTY
    Created Jan. 28, 1850, from Limestone and Milam counties.
    Organized Aug. 5, 1850.
    Named for falls on the Brazos River which flow through the center of the county.
    White colonization in the area pre-dates the Texas Revolution, but colonists fled on news of Santa Anna's assault, 1836.
    John Marlin, for whom county seat was named, returned and settled near present city.
    Growth was steady and the first railroad reached the county in 1870. A center for farming, manufacturing and dairying.
    Curative artesian water gives Marlin recognition as a health spa.
