Marlboro is an unincorporated community located within Marlboro Township in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States.[2]

The settlement is located along Route 79 north of Route 18, where it intersects County Routes 4 and 46.

Marlboro was likely named for its early use of marl as a fertilizer.[3]

By 1873, Marlboro had a post office, school, hotel, multiple stores, churches, and a railroad station of the Freehold and Keyport Railroad.[4] In 1882, the population was 102.[5]

Marlboro was described in 1939 as having "large frame houses comfortably spaced along the highway".[3]:555
