    Before 1700, the Marissa area was inhabited by various Native American tribes. The first settlers came to the area around 1805, and the first elementary school opened in the area in 1831.

    Today Marissa is a small, but progressive community with much to offer including an excellent school system, well-equipped parks and a low crime rate. There are several active community groups including the Chamber of Commerce, the Business and Professional Women, Lions, Optimist, Sorority and others who work tirelessly to support the village and live up to its motto: Marissa - The Hometown You've Been Looking For.
