Marine is located along the scenic St. Croix River 12 miles north of Stillwater and 15 miles south of Taylors Falls. The Village Hall, Community Library
, Lutheran Church
, Stone House Museum, Mill Site
and Fire Hall are all sources of pride to the approximate 700 residents of Marine.
Once a busy river town with a population of 650 during the 1880's, Marine is now a community whose residents treasure the atmosphere of a friendly small town and country life with the advantages of being near a metropolitan area. In 1964, a group of residents established the Restoration Society
to preserve the unique quality of this historical riverside town as it enjoys new growth and the advantages of both city and country living.
