Marlboro Township is a township in Monmouth County, New Jersey. It was named for the prevalence of marl, a lime-rich mud or mudstone which contains variable amounts of clays and silt, which was first discovered in the area east of the village in 1768. Farmers used marl to improve the soil in the days before commercial fertilizers and there was a heavy demand for it. Marlboro’s first industry was the export of the material, used primarily as fertilizer. Marlboro was rural and composed mostly of dairy farms, potato, tomato and other farms laced with small hamlets with modest inns or taverns. Before World War II Marlboro Township was actually the nation’s largest grower of potatoes, and was also known for a large tomato and egg industry. During World War II, egg farms significantly expanded to accommodate military demand. Following World War II, the state began to significantly build and improve the area transportation infrastructure. Housing developments started to replace the farm and rural nature as the community expanded. After the early 1970s, Marlboro became a growing suburb for people working in New York and in large nearby corporations. In 2000, Marlboro became the first municipality in New Jersey, and one of the first areas in the U.S., to ban cell phone use while driving, a ban that took effect in March 2001. Marlboro was the first municipality in New Jersey to prohibit the use of hand-held cell phones by the operators of motor vehicles.
