"To tell you the truth, more things of importance happened to me in Marceline than have happened since, or are likely to in the future."
- Walt Disney
In 1905, a small town in Missouri welcomed a man who would one day influence generations of children.
Marceline, Mo., the childhood home of the man who envisioned Mickey Mouse, welcomes visitors from all over the world, including Japan and China.
Fun fact: Marceline was created as a division point for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. 70 trains continue to run through the town daily.
I'm not modest. I'm scared. I'm not funny. I hide behind the mouse, the duck and a lot of other things. I'm still a farm boy - a small town farm boy."
