History of Marlborough, NY
First settled in 1694, Marlborough’s long and rich rural tradition can be seen in the many small farms that have developed in this area, as the rolling hills protected orchards from spring frosts, and the Hudson River provided easy transportation of fresh produce.
After the advent of steam power in the mid eighteen hundreds, local farms were able to “overnight” produce directly to markets in the city. Because many waves of settlers came to Marlborough to farm, our town’s heritage includes a diverse blend of nationalities and cultures.
