Celebrating Sippican: Marion in the Golden Age – an experience of Marion history as it rose in social and cultural prominence in the late 19th century as a destination resort community for noteworthy individuals from President Grover Cleveland to artist Charles Dana Gibson. The Golden Age of Marion began after the Civil War when it emerged from a sleepy seaside village to a summer gathering place of artists, writers, actors, musicians and other intellectual leaders and celebrities at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.
