—Courthouse Square Walking Trail —When classrooms were carved out of the second floor auditorium space in the first high school. Marion students and the entire community used a tabernacle built in 1924 on the south side of the high school for events requiring an auditorium. When the new auditorium-gymnasium was completed on this site in 1938, as a special event, an exhibition basketball game was played by Louisiana State University and Southwestern at Memphis in 1939.
