Marion is the county seat of Perry County in the Upper Coastal Plain of Alabama, approximately 75 miles from both Birmingham and Montgomery and 55 miles from Tuscaloosa. This part I will cover the U.S. Fish Hatchery on Alabama Route 175 and Perry Luke, which is a backwater of the Cahaba River containing a cypress swamp to the rear (and east) of the hatchery. Part II will cover Lakeland Farms south of the city.
