History:

Marble, a city in Greenway Township, sections 16-20, was incorporated as a village on April 20, 1909. The first homestead claim was in 1888 by Albert F. Gross of Duluth, which became the Gross-Marble Mining Company property; the village was enlarged in 1908 by the Oliver Mining Company, at which time 20 of its 80 acres were reserved for a public park. The post office began in 1908.

Recreation:
Mesabi Trail

The Taconite State Trail stretches 165 miles from Grand Rapids to Ely and intersects with the Arrowhead State Trail just west of Lake Vermillion. Portions are paved for biking and in-line skating. The remainder of the natural surface trail is used primarily for snowmobiling in the winter. The trail goes through a few areas that have standing water in the summer, however portions of the trail are suitable for horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking.

The Taconite Trail winds through forests of birch and aspen intertwined with pine, leading the visitor by many isolated lakes and streams. From Grand Rapids heading north, you see the impact of the taconite and iron mining industry. The northern portion of the trail terrain is rolling and tree covered as it winds through state and national forest land.

Eight trail waysides and picnic facilities offer scenic vistas of the hills, lakes and rivers of this area. The trail also links three state parks: Bear Head Lake, Soudan Underground Mine, and McCarthy Beach. The landscape in and around Bear Head Lake State Park is very rolling and rocky.
