Enjoy a Picnic Meal in a Peaceful Setting

Before there was a town here, what’s now Pocahontas was the large farm of pioneer settler Thomas O. Marr, who came here in 1807. The Lesmeister Guesthouse is on Marr Street, and the site of Marr’s home is now Thomas O. Marr Park, nine blocks north of The Lesmeister on Marr Street.

The park is home to the town’s public swimming pools, community center (with gymnasium), a picnic pavilion and plenty of picnic tables where residents and visitors are welcome to enjoy a picnic meal in a peaceful setting.
