BRIEF HISTORY OF MARLTON, NJ 08053
Marlton is a historic community located within Evesham Township that covers 3.235 square miles (8.38 km2) of the township. "Marlton" is often used in place of the township's name, even when referring to locations beyond the boundaries.
The name Marlton came about in the early 19th century and stems from the name "Marl." Marl is a naturally occurring mixture of green clay with remnants of shells that was used as a fertilizer, like manure. Its discovery helped local commerce and fueled the first "building boom", which took place in the 1830s and 1840s. Marl continued to be mined locally until 1930, when the pits were finally closed. Today one is known as the Benicia recycling center.
The Marlton area was recognized as a village in 1758. The village was named Marlton in 1845. The same year the "Evesham" Post Office and the "Evesham" Baptist Church both had their names changed to "Marlton" Post Office and the "Marlton" Baptist Church. The names remain the same today. Most maps and directional signs refer to Marlton instead of Evesham. The historic village, Olde Marlton, remains mostly intact and is a locally regulated Historic District.
