Marble Hill is a fourth-class city in central Bollinger County in Southeast Missouri in the United States. Located at the intersection of State Highway 34 and State Highway 51, it is the largest city in Bollinger and serves as the county seat. The population was 1,477 at the 2010 census. The city was officially organized in July 1851 and is named after a marble-like rock.Marble Hill is part of the Cape Girardeau−Jackson, MO-IL Metropolitan Statistical Area.HistoryThe area that would eventually become known as Marble Hill was established in 1842 as New California. Nine years later, it was renamed Dallas in 1851. As the area grew over the years, the First Baptist Church was built in 1856 near the oldest cemetery in Marble Hill. In 1862, the courthouse and town of Dallas was raided by Colonel S.D. Kitchen along with 120 Confederate soldiers. Finally, in 1868, the name of the town was changed again, this time to Marble Hill, to prevent confusion with the already existing Dallas County, Missouri.A year after the name change, a man by the name of Eli Lutes laid out what would become known as Lutesville. Lutes offered 10acre to the railroad for a depot location which would be used as a shipping and trading point. Disputes with leaders of Marble Hill persuaded the railroad to relocate their route through Lutesville instead.
