Marilla was five miles north of Quail in western Collingsworth County. A post office was established there in May 1905, and a school district was founded. In 1910 the post office was merged with that of Quail, and during the 1930s the two school districts were likewise merged. In 1989 only a grain elevator remained at the site of Marilla.
