Marlborough, New Hampshire

Another beautiful town in southwestern New Hampshire’s Cheshire County, Marlborough, NH, is a thriving community of about 2200 people.  Small but vital, Marlborough is primarily a bedroom community with over 80% of residents working out of town; many of them in neighboring Keene.  Marlborough is not an industrial town, but instead a town that families are proud to call their own – quiet, surrounded with natural beauty and full of caring people that will quickly become your new extended family.

Monadnock #5 was the designation for this parcel of land before it was truly settled.  Intended as one town in a line of defensive positions along the western side of New Hampshire, Monadnock #5 was finally settled around 1768.  It was first known as Oxford then New Marlborough before becoming incorporated as Marlborough in 1776.  The town got its name from settlers who came from Marlborough, Massachusetts, which itself had been named after John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough.

Mostly a community of farmers and hunters in the beginning, Marlborough soon became known for its high-quality granite.  Quarries were developed and soon Marlborough became a leading supplier of granite to the area.  These quarries have long since closed.

Marlborough is located just outside the city limits of Keene, making for easy convenience for shopping, dining or entertainment.  Keene has just about anything a Marlborough resident might need and is only minutes away.  Marlborough itself offers activities for the town’s youth in the form of organized sports such as baseball, soccer and basketball as well as the plentiful streams and ponds that can easy fill the hours on a lazy afternoon.  Marlborough has biking and hiking trails to keep you fit in the summer and cross-country skiing and snowmobiling to stay entertained during those snowy winter months.

Marlborough, New Hampshire, is a member of the School Administrative Unit #29.  Marlborough educates resident students from kindergarten age through the eighth grade.  Students of high-school age are tuitioned at the nearby Keene High School.  Though the possibility of a high school has been discussed, there are currently no plans to construct one in town.
