Famous for having the longest running Independence Day parade west of the Mississippi, Marshfield has a tradition of welcoming the nation's top elected officials to this Ozark community. Presidents Harry Truman and George Bush both made this Webster County community a campaign stop on the nation's birthday drawing thousands to the area. In 2006, Marshfield made the national news as it welcomed the largest gathering of presidential relatives in the history of the nation. The historic gathering occurred for the announcement ceremony of the National First Families Library and Museum, which is located on the city square. Marshfield is the sister city of Marshfield, Massachusetts. The city also features the Webster County Museum and the Missouri Walk of Fame, which is Missouri's version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Today this scenic farm has been transformed into a wedding and event center hosting celebrations for young and old alike. The Dickey House, a lovely and gracious Greek Revival mansion, was built at the turn of the century by Samuel N. Dickey, a prominent prosecuting attorney, and remained in the family until 1970.

Marshfield is known for being the birthplace to Edwin Powell Hubble. Hubble was born Nov. 20, 1889 in Marshfield and was one of the leading astronomers in the twentieth century, studying 46 galaxies. The city gained national attention when NASA launched the Hubble Space Telescope in 1990.

It took approximately three months to build, is approximately 12 feet long, 10 feet wide and weighs 1,200 pounds.
A mural just off the square at Clay and Washington streets also gives honor to Edwin P. Hubble by including it in the painting, and in 2004, a portion of Interstate 44 between Northview and Marshfield became known as “The Edwin P. Hubble Highway.”Marshfield was most recently designated a “Tree City USA” as many people donated their time and energy planting more than 3,500 trees that can be enjoyed in the many parks, schools, businesses and homes throughout the community.
