Krupp is a town in Grant County, Washington, United States. The population was 60 at the 2000 census. Although legally incorporated as Krupp, the town is more commonly known as Marlin, which is the name of its post office. Elections are held there under the name of Marlin, Washington, and they are the same locale.

Krupp has the lowest population of any incorporated municipality in Washington.



First settled in 1871 by John Marlin,[2] 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.
