Markesan sparkles in the midst of lush farmland. For a glimpse of local history, visit the town’s Grand River Valley Museum. Open weekends from the beginning of May through the end of September, the museum is made up of several historical buildings including the Markesan train depot, a one-room schoolhouse, and an additional building showcasing how people lived in the early 1900s. This community is also home to one of only three sites where skeletal remains of a woolly mammoth have been discovered. For fishermen looking for a place where the fish are biting, Little Green Lake is known for its muskies.
