Plymouth

 

Plymouth is a city located in the heart of the Midwest on the banks of the Yellow River. The population was 10,033 at the 2010 census and is the county seat of Marshall County. Incorporated as a city in 1873, Plymouth quickly became an important stop along the Michigan Road. The City was originally platted as a town by John Sering, James Blair and William Polk in 1834. Plymouth was selected as the county seat in 1836.

The historic Michigan Road formed the center axis through downtown, providing a broad thoroughfare with wide sidewalks and angled parking. The downtown area has a number of historic commercial buildings, most built between 1870 and 1940. The building styles feature Italianate, Neo-classical and some other traditional Midwestern styles. Two locally noteworthy architects participated in giving Plymouth its built appearance, Alves O'Keefe and Jacob Ness. The two helped to design and construct many historic buildings from the late 1800s and into 1960s. Ness was responsible for such structures as the St. Thomas Episcopal Church while O'Keefe designed and built the Art Deco Rees Theatre.

The first store opened was opened here by Oliver Rose in 1835. Merchant trade blossomed and the first Montgomery Ward store in America opened in Plymouth in 1926 on Michigan Street. Plymouth's merchants still occupy many of the downtown buildings and a growing number of retail stores, restaurants and other commercial ventures are spread across the city.

Plymouth is recognized for its Blueberry Festival, the state's largest four day festival. Initiated in 1966, the Blueberry Festival was organized by the Plymouth Jaycees in observance of Indiana's sesquicentennial. The festival is held over Labor Day weekend and aims to provide quality family activities at little or no cost as it is a venue for many Marshall County nonprofit organizations to raise funds. 

The City of Plymouth has long been an industrial center with sawmills, barrels, and baskets have been replaced by plastics, food production, and tire industries. Today, large industrial parks on the City's west side provide stable employment to thousands of Plymouth residents. This quaint city boasts two major four-lane highways, a municipal airport, two rail lines, efficient public utilities and welcoming citizens. Being a rural community, Plymouth has always catered to local farmers and continues that tradition with the Farmer's Market on Garro Street during the summer months.
