History

The area was settled around 1669 but received its patent (to Henry Beekman, Thomas Garton, and Charles Brodhead) only in 1703. The community of Marbletown once served briefly as the state capital, after the city of Kingston was burned by the British during the American Revolutionary War.

Part of Marbletown was used in 1823 to form the Town of Olive and another part was used in 1844 to form the Town of Rosendale. The Town of Marbletown was formed in 1844.

Marbletown was also the birthplace of Leona Helmsley.

Marbletown is the country residence of actors Willem Dafoe and Aidan Quinn, Julia Roberts, Steve Buscemi, Bruce Morrow, Rachel Weisz and Robert De Niro.
