Built in 1963, Marion Springs School served the community until its closing in 2011. It is now owned and operated by Jay and Mary Bessey. They purchased the building in 2014 and have been living in it and working on it since, with the goal of opening an event center. In 2018, Marion Springs School was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Marion Springs Event Center is now open and accepting reservations.
