It’s the home of the white squirrel. Well, that is what Marionville, Missouri residents say, although they have an on-going battle with Olney, Illinois about who can claim the title. Regardless, there are white squirrels everywhere in Marionville — the actual ones, statues in gift stores, on t-shirts, and on the city’s welcome sign.
Located 25 miles southwest of Springfield, Marionville is a quiet, quirky little city that offers plenty of outdoor entertainment. It is 15 miles southwest of Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield and 22 miles from Mark Twain National Forest (Crossville area), and 35 miles north of Roaring River State Park. Fishing (especially trout fishing), camping, swimming, boating, and hiking are all readily available in these and other nearby parks.
Marionville apartment rentals offer the best Southwest Missouri has to offer — quiet evenings, friendly neighbors, and a rural landscape. And, as a bonus, beautiful white squirrels in your backyard.
