The thriving town of Marcus is reportedly named after the son of early railroad builder John Blair, who provided the names for many other Iowa towns, including Aurelia, Alta and Blairsburg, among others. Marcus has its own fair each summer, along with many other community activities. The Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn school district's high school and Middle School are located in Marcus.
