History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

New Marlborough was first settled in 1738 as one of the four townships opened along the road between Sheffield and Westfield. The town was officially incorporated in 1775, and presumably named for Marlborough, Massachusetts. The town grew as a combination of agriculture in the area around the town center, and mills along the rivers in town. Today it is mostly rural, with little industry.
