Marceline Missouri is located two hours northeast of Kansas City in the Green Hills region of North Missouri.


It was originally founded as a Santa Fe railroad town and has served the railroad as a crew change point, maintenance yard with a roundhouse, coal and water supply for the steam engine era, and today still serves as a track maintenance headquarters for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe.


Historical homes and well-kept neighborhoods surround our famous Main Street USA and its link to our most famous citizen, Walt Disney.


With our railroad heritage and the great work ethic of our citizens… Marceline has become a great place to live and for our industries a great place to prosper.
