About the MCVB

The Marshalltown Convention & Visitors Bureau (MCVB) has been in operation since 1991. The MCVB is operational through the funding received from a percentage of the Motel/Hotel tax. Their office is located in the Fisher Community Center which was generously donated toour-building the community by William (Bill) Fisher and is the location of Christian Petersen’s final sculpture, “Dedication to the Future”.
