Tourist buses are now stopping in the Marion area, thanks to the efforts of Bob and Kathy Sprowls, owners of Kingfisher’s Inn at Marion County Lake. The Sprowls sent 79 invitations to groups to tour the area. Three groups have already taken a tour through a regional bus line. The tourist route includes stops at Kingfisher’s for lunch, Copper Shed, Flint Hills Clay Works, Flint Hills Gold, and Country Charm. Optional stops include Central Park, Marion Historical Museum, Marion Mini-Mall, and the Adobe House Museum in Hillsboro.
