History: 

The Marcell area was first surveyed in 1870. Lumbermen like T. B. Walker took up land in the late 1870's and early 1880's. John Lundeen from Wisconsin filed for homestead in 1899 and was the first settler to offer a final proof of his claim. He and his wife Katie moved to an area near Marcell on Big Turtle Lake in 1901, where he built a store, a home, a restaurant and a sawmill intended to service homesteaders and people working for the Itasca Lumber Company. By the end of 1901, the railroad had completed a railroad spur to the lake and put two steamboats into Big Turtle to load logs.

In 1902, Katie Lundeen applied for a Post Office to be named Turtle Lake. The postal authorities said there were too many Turtle Lake post offices in Northern Minnesota, so she submitted her application with the name Marcell, a name honoring Andrew Marcell, the first conductor on the Minneapolis and Rainy River Railroad, more commonly known as the "Gut and Liver". In 1905 a petition was presented to the Itasca County Board of Commissioners to establish the township of Big Turtle Lake, and the first election was held in 1906. The first supervisors of the township board were Oscar Harbin, John Sundloff, and Matt Zimmer. Albert Jaynes was elected treasurer, and John Lundeen was elected town clerk. One of the first orders of business was to change the name of the township from Big Turtle to Marcell.

The town of Marcell at the Big Turtle Lake location did not remain there long. Lundeen's store, post office, and warehouse burned in 1910. The Deer River News reported a loss of $4,000, a considerable amount at that time. "Old Marcell" was no more. Today none of the old buildings remain.

Being an astute businessman, John Lundeen decided to rebuild in the area where the present community of Marcell now exists. There had been plans to extend the Minneapolis and Rainy River Railroad from Alder to the Canadian border, serving the towns along the way, and this would have put Lundeen's new store in an advantageous spot.

In 1914, Marcell built its first school, which was replaced by a larger school building in 1936. In 1957 the school district closed its many rural elementary schools, and elementary students now attend school at North Elementary School near Talmoon, and high school students are bussed into Deer River.

The railroad ceased running into Marcell in 1933, and was followed by the construction of Highway 38 which supplied a direct route to Grand Rapids and Bigfork. This opened up the area to tourism and many resorts came into being and flourished. Camp Idlewood, started in 1912 by Walter and Rose Stickler, was one of the better known operations and had a wide following.  There were 33 guest cottages with rates of $12 per day per person for room and board.

Another noteworthy resort in the Marcell area is Arcadia Park. Located on the west side of Big Turtle Lake, Arcadia has one of the most spectacular views in all of Northern Minnesota. Started in 1922 as a community of individual homes and cabins, Arcadia soon had a main lodge and cabins to rent.

Electricity came to Marcell in after World War II in 1945, and the area flourished.

Celebrate our northern hospitality, hometown pride and the treasures of our natural heritage. Minnesota, midway between America's east and west coast, is the home to 12,000 lakes. It is filled with beautiful country and all the pleasures of the four seasons. The Edge of the Wilderness is the rustic slice of this great state, with more than 1,000 lakes and one mighty river nearby, all in landscapes of remarkable natural beauty. There are still more trees than people here -- offering you classic northwoods seclusion.

Scenic State Park

 

 
Suomi Hills

A primitive & non-motorized area set aside within the Chippewa National Forest. It has 21 miles of trails and numerous small lakes. Sort of a miniature version of the boundary waters canoe area. Suomi Hills has gorgeous fall colors and good grouse hunting!

 

Recreation:
Marcell Snowdrifters Snowmobile Club
The clubhouse is located in Marcell, south of Frontier Sports. There is plenty of parking to facilitate snowmobile enthusiasts that would like to ride the trails beginning from that point. 
Wilderness Willie Trail starts in Effie and heads North/East towards Togo. The 25 mile trail is maintained and groomed by the Snowdrifters, connecting the Effie Connection to the Circle T Trail. Effie Connection starts in Bigfork, heads North and then connects to the Caldwell Brook Trail which leads to Gemmell, Minnesota (the Blue Ox Trail system.) The Snowdrifters maintain and groom 16 miles of this trail. Of the Bowstring Trail, the club maintains and grooms a little over 15 miles of trail. Marcell Trail begins South of Marcell (at the North end of the Suomi Trail) and heads North connecting to the Bowstring Trail, the Cameron Lake Trail (the club grooming and maintaining 14 out of the 18 miles), the Effie Connection and the Bigfork Lions Trail (6 miles of which is the club's responsibility) which is a total of 25 miles. There are many little 'spurs' that the Snowdrifters maintain and groom also.
Marcell Town Park
The park features 2 tennis courts, a basketball court, softball field, walking/biking/inline skating trail, playground equipment, picnic area, horseshoes & volleyball court.

North Central Research Station - Marcell Experimental Forest
The USDA Forest Service Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF) is an 890-ha tract of land located 40 km north of Grand Rapids, Minnesota. The MEF has been reserved for long-term research with the cooperation of the USDA Forest Service North Central Research Station, the Chippewa National Forest, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Itasca County, and a private landowner. It is operated by the North Central Research Station, Research Work Unit 4351: Ecology and Management of Riparian and Aquatic Ecosystems, located at the Forestry Sciences Laboratory, 1831 Highway 169 East, Grand Rapids, MN 55744.

The MEF contains six watersheds, each consisting of an upland portion and a peatland that is the source of a stream leaving the watershed. These unique features provide a wide range of hydrological environments to study.

The Marcell Experimental Forest has a large historical database concerning soils, hydrology, and chemical cycling and transport. Climatic and hydrologic data have been collected continuously at monitoring stations since 1960. Six peatland / upland forest watersheds have been instrumented, and have been studied in detail, including hydrology, nutrient and mercury cycling and behavior, and release of organic carbon and acidity. Hydrologic monitoring and other related research continues at the MEF.
