TEXAS REGIONS

PINEY WOODS

Marshall is in Harrison County in Northeastern Texas. The 2000 census population of Marshall was 23,935. Marshall serves as a cultural and education center extending into Louisiana and Arkansas.

Marshall was first settled in 1839, becoming the county seat of Harrison County in 1842. In 1861, when Texas decided to leave the American Union for awhile, Marshall was one of the biggest and wealthiest towns in Texas, producing clothing, harnesses, saddles, gun powder and ammunition for the Confederacy. After the falling of Vicksburg, Marshall became the seat of civil Confederate authority west of the Mississippi River.

Annual events in Marshall include Stagecoach Days in May, the Fireant Festival in October and the Wonderland of Lights from Thanksgiving through New Year's Day.

Marshall gets its municipal water supply from Caddo Lake. This has resulted in recent years in conflicts with environmentalists over the amount of water Marshall can draw from the lake.

Marshall is the home of East Texas Baptist University, Texas State Technical College and Wiley College.

Marshall has what is known as a humid subtropical climate. This means it can get very hot and humid in summer, but winters are relatively mild. Marshall averages 51.2 inches of rain annually.
