Marlborough is a town in Cheshire County New Hampshire, United States. The population was 2,009 at the 2000 census. The town is home to the Kensan-Devan Wildlife Sanctuary at Meetinghouse Pond.

The primary settlement in town, where over 54% of the population resides, is defined as the Marlborough census-designated place (CDP) and is located at the junction of New Hampshire Routes 101 and 124.

History

First granted as "Monadnock No. 5" in 1752 by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth, this was one of the fort towns originally known only by a number. Lots were drawn in 1762 and first settled two years later. The town was at one time called "Oxford", then "New Marlborough", but was incorporated in 1776 as "Marlborough". Many of the settlers were from Marlborough, Massachusetts, which had been named for John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, in the late 1600s. Land was set off in 1815 to create the town of Troy.

There was once an important granite industry here. Stone from Marlborough quarries was used in buildings in Boston, at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts, and locally in the Frost Free Library. Blankets and wooden-ware, including toys, have been manufactured in Marlborough as well.

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 20.6 square miles (53.4 km2), of which 20.4 sq mi (52.8 km2) is land and 0.2 sq mi (0.5 km2) is water, comprising 1.16% of the town. Marlborough is drained by Minnewawa Brook. The town's highest point is near its southeast corner, on the side of Bigelow Hill, where the elevation reaches 1,516 feet (462 m) above sea level.

The town center of Marlborough, or census-designated place, has a total area of 1.7 square miles (4.4 km2), none of which is covered with water.
