About Janet Groth
We are the great-grandchildren of the original owner and builders JA and Maggie McGonagill and ate many Sunday 'after church' meals here with family and friends. We walked to the French Grocery store and charged candy bars and cokes to our parents after school when we were kids. We played games in the yard. This home and this town are dear to our hearts and an integral part of our family history.
Janet Groth purchased this house in 1940
Why Janet Groth chose Marathon
This home has been in my family for four generations. Although we don't live in the area, we love Marathon for its one-of-a-kind atmosphere and visit several times a year. We support the Marathon Baptist Church and enjoy meals at the restaurants in Marathon. The Fourth of July Dance at the Post, local roping and horsemanship events, and nostalgia call us back to Marathon numerous times every year.
What makes this house unique
Short walk to downtown Marathon; tranquility and large parking area; family ties to Marathon; read about our ranching family and how and why the house was constructed in Marathon.
