Marshan Township
19497 205th Street East
Hastings, MN 55033
Welcome to our website

Marshan Township is located in eastern Dakota County, south of the city of Hastings. It was named after Michael Marsh and his wife, Ann. Marsh platted and owned Marshan City and served as postmaster until the city was abandoned in the late 1850s.

The township covers 34.5 square miles and, according to the 2000 U.S. census, was home to 1,263 residents. The township's estimated median houshold income in 2009 was $69,891, which was considerably higher than the Minnesota average of $55,616. The estimated median house or condo value in 2009 was $331,979. That compares to the state's average of $200,400.

Although the township is mostly rural, it does have two popular golf courses, Bellwood Oaks and Hidden Greens, and Steve and Sylvia Bauer's famous Little Log House settlement that includes a number of restored historic buildings and an impressive replica of the world famous Hastings Spiral Bridge.

Thanks for visiting. We plan to continue adding new features, so please stop back soon.
