Marlboro History

Marlboro was formed as a township on February 17, 1848. The Lenni-Lenape Native Americans were among the first inhabitants of this region. Farmers from England, Scotland and The Netherlands settled in this area in the 17th century. The town was originally called Marlborough due to the abundance of marl, which was primarily used as a fertilizer. Until World War II, Marlboro was primarily rural. However, the infrastructure began improving after the war, and Marlboro became a flourishing town.
