Thriving Metropolis in Northwest Ohio's Ottawa County. Known for such landmarks as The Shooting range, the post office and "that old abandoned house".

Martin has a great history. Once upon a time early in the 20th century passenger trains stopped in town for rests. A general store, a hotel and a large church accommodated the travelers. Today the old church was torn down and replaced with a small house, the hotel burnt down and the remains of the building were remodeled in to a house, and the old general store became an electrical wiring company called Yackee Electric Service (YES).
