From the day we moved to Marshalltown 24 years ago, we found a community that was warm and welcoming. We know many people who have found that same warm, welcoming feeling too, but with such a shortage of housing in the community, many people just can’t find the living situation they want. We believe up-scale, executive-style rental townhomes with AWESOME views of the American Legion Golf Course, all the way to Lincoln Towers and on the other side, to the Courthouse, will fill a void in the rental market. With more housing options, more people can live in our community and experience that same warm and welcoming feeling.
The name of Crosby Park was the perfect fit because it is the site of the old Crosby Pool in Marshalltown. The pool was named after a former mayor, William B. Crosby, a 6-term mayor, born and raised in Marshalltown. Crosby was also a member of the Frank Lewis Glick Post No. 46 American Legion. Crosby’s efforts helped raise the money for the new pool. Crosby Pool was a well known fixture in the community and even today the name conjures up fond memories for so many who enjoyed summer swimming and Splash Dances. We used the name “park” because Crosby Park is a park-like setting with peaceful views in both summer and winter. With the American Legion Golf Course as our neighbor, the entire area has a “park” feel. And finally, just south of our property, the American Legion has a small picnic area with a covered patio – perfect for a friendly get-together. We hope the American Legion is pleased with the name and that Mr. Crosby would be too!
