Marytown, Wisconsin is an unincorporated community in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, in the town of Calumet. Marytown is located at the intersection of Fond du Lac County highways G and HH. Wisconsin Highway 149 ran north to south through the community before it was decommissioned in 2006.
Marytown is in an area of eastern Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin known as "The Holyland", so called because of the large number of communities built around churches, including St. Anna, St. Peter, St. Cloud, Mount Calvary, Johnsburg, Calvary, Brothertown and Jericho.
