The town of Marne sprang up in the late 1800s because a local businessman installed a mill and small dam on Sand Creek. The town was originally called Ford's Mill, but soon was referred to as Berlin. The town's name was changed to honor veterans who passed in a battle during the first World War, though many of the biggest local attractions still feature the old town name, such as the Berlin Raceway and the Berlin Fairgrounds.
The Berlin Raceway is a major draw for the community, bringing in high-speed automobile races and other heart-pounding events for the whole family. If you're more of an outdoorsy person, Marne is also a trailhead for The Musketawa Trail, a 25-mile trail that runs along a now-defunct rail line. There's a rich local culture and plenty of open air and rolling land for those who need some space for their lifestyle. Whether you're looking for a peaceful community within close commuting distance to Grand Rapids or a place with proximity to West Michigan's only asphalt raceway, Marne is a wonderful place to call home!
