The community had emigrated from Canada as early as 1871, settling on farms along the Rooks County-Graham County line in northwest Kansas. According to tradition, the community was named after D.M. Marr, the original owner of the town site.

I am amazed at the commitment these tiny towns had to building these beautiful churches. The catholic churches are especially ornate.
