Welcome, New Members!

Marion, Indiana, pop. 31,320 The Honorable Wayne Seybold, mayor

The site of the famous Battle of Mississinewa, where U.S. troops and the Miami Indians fought a bloody battle in 1812, Marion was established in 1831.

Although its present industry is automotive, it is also known for its factories that produce picture tubes, paper and foundry products, wire, and cable.

The paper plate industry was born in Marion, and agriculture is a multi-million-dollar business centering on corn, hogs and soybeans, supplemented by such specialty crops as tomatoes.

Marion is the home of Indiana Wesleyan University. Actor James Byron Dean was born there: composer Cole Porter studied music there; Kenesaw Mountain Landis, the first commissioner of organized baseball, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Willis Van Devanter practiced there; and Captain George W. Steele, Jr., who crossed the Atlantic by air four years before Lindbergh did, was a Marion native.

Township of Piainsboro, New Jersey, pop. 20,215

The Honorable Peter A. Canut, mayor

Plainsboro was established in 1919, but historians differ as to how the township acquired its name. Some historians argue that it was first called "Planesborough" after a local tavern. Other researchers maintain that the area was first called the "Borough of the Plains" or simply "The Plains." The first U.S. Post Office designated the area as Plainsborough, which was subsequently shortened to Plainsboro.

In 1897, a company selected Plainsboro as the site for its innovative certified dairy farm. Designed to produce clean, high quality milk and milk formulas for infant feeding at a time before pasteurization was a common practice, the farm grew to become the largest certified dairy farm in the world.

The dairy operation ceased in 1971, about the same time that the community transformed from a small farm area into a more modern suburb.

Today, with Princeton University as its largest property owner, Plainsboro is a quality suburban community that retains much of its agricultural and open-space heritage.

Again, welcome, Marion and Plainsboro! We look forward to your long, active involvement with NLC. …
