Vintage Home, Kansas.

Home, Kansas, an unincorporated community in northcentral Marshall County, is located along U.S. Route 36 – the Pony Express Highway – and along the Union Pacific Railroad about seven miles east of Marysville.

Its post office opened in February 1874 and the town name comes from the fact that it was established in someone’s home. In 1910, Home was a busy shipping point for grain and livestock along the St. Joseph & Grand Island Railroad. All of the main lines of business were represented including banking facilities, schools and churches, express and telegraph offices, and a post office with two rural routes. The population in 1900 was 450.
