In 1892, the community was founded by a group of immigrant Volga Germans; they named it after their previous hometown of Marienthal (Tonkoschurovka), Russia (today Sovetskoya, Russia), located in the district of Saratov, on the east side of the Volga River. The post office was established March 18, 1902. Marienthal now consists of roughly 100 people, a Catholic church, a post office, a flour mill, a substance abuse treatment center, a trucking company, a bar and a grain elevator.
