30 - Year - Old Paper Tells of Marble Precinct

SEPTEMBER 17, 1937 - Marble precinct, in eastern Saunders county, is located in Township 14, Ranges 9 and 10, East of the Sixth Principal Meridian, and is bounded on the east by the Platte river. On the south, west and north it is bordered by Clear Creek, Wahoo, and Union precincts respectively. Its only town is the little village of Wann, located in the northwest corner of Section 36, on the Ashland-Fremont-Sioux City branch of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad. The soil of this precinct is excellent, and produces annually some of the finest crops in the entire county.

There are six district schools in Marble precinct, located as follows: one in the eastern part of section 33, one in the southeast corner of section 30, one on the northern side of section 22, one on the southern side of section 17, one in the northeast corner of section 7, and one in the southwest corner of section 2. There is a rural church in the southeast corner of section 29, and a rural cemetery on the northern line of section 22.
