Marine on St. Croix in Washington County, Minnesota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
The Marine Township Hall
After the official abolishment of Marine Township in 1895, the "Stone House" led a varied career as school, storage quarters, and community center.
The structure received architectural recognition in 1934 when the National Historic American Buildings Survey chose it as an outstanding example of the Swedish stone work of early Minnesota settlers and recorded its architectural measurements in the Library of Congress.
In 1963 the Town Hall became a museum operated by the Women's Civic Club of Marine.
