History

First settled in 1871 by John Marlin,[5] Krupp incorporated on January 7, 1911.

The name of the post office was changed from Krupp to Marlin during World War I in order to avoid negative associations with a large, well-known munitions plant in Germany. To this day, Krupp is known primarily by the name of its post office, rather than its official name; something of a town "nickname" if you will.

In the summer of 1971 a three-day rock festival, "Sunrise '71," was scheduled to take place immediately south of town, but was shut down by county authorities. It was to be on the scale of Woodstock.
