*Area, Population and Density rankings refer to Marlboro's relative position among Vermont's 255 civic entities (9 cities, 242 towns, 4 gores and grants). Complete rankings are here.

Originally Marleborough, then Marlbrough, the Indian Wars interfered with settlement. Wentworth re-granted the town to exactly the same group of people in 1761, and again to a slightly different group in 1764 as New Marlborough. The "New" was never popular with the residents, and was later officially changed. Rumor that the town was named for George Spencer, Earl of Marleborough cannot be historically true due to the dates involved. It was more likely named for Marlboro, Massachusetts (several of the grantees were from that colony).

Notes about utilities:

  • One electric or phone company indicates that company serves the entire town. More than one of either indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • A listed cable company MIGHT mean the entire town is covered, but not necessarily. More than one listed indicates each serves different areas of town.
  • Unless your area is one served by Vermont's only gas utility, your only option is bottled gas (any dealer).
