GEORGE MARVIN IN WARROAD

George Marvin arrived in Warroad, a small northern Minnesota town near the Canadian border to take a job managing a grain elevator. The area was a booming lumber center, providing pulpwood for paper mills. Recognizing an opportunity, George Marvin established the Marvin Lumber & Cedar Company in 1912 and spent the next 70 years building a business that became a cornerstone of the Warroad community.
George Marvin with his partner signed their first big pulp contract with Backus & Brooks of International Falls, Minn. in 1909. George Marvin continued to do business with them every year for the rest of his life.
In 1911 Marvin and Roberts handled 2300 railway cars of pulpwood and were the largest pulpwood buyers in the district.

MARVIN WINDOWS AND DOORS

The company that become Marvin Windows and Doors was born when Bill Marvin realized that making windows would create jobs and keep returning servicemen in Warroad after the end of World War II
