Touring the Model Town

Upstairs in the Marianna Library is a scale model someone built of the town in the 1950s. Township supervisor Lars Lange showed it to me and my husband, Gary Zizka, and we compared notes about Marianna history we'd learned in our research. Born in Germany, Lars Lange lives on a farm near Marianna, where he practices law, but he also studied mining and worked both as a coal miner and a mining supervisor.
