There is a new nature preserve, along the Heartland Trail, coming to Marshallville.  It will be located on 40 acres of wooded land that the village already owns.  $300,000 in state funding will be used to create and maintain a limestone walking trail.  Village officials say they would also like to build a pavilion and restroom facility at the trailhead, but that will depend on whether or not they’re awarded an additional  grant through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
