The Marlow Historical Society has owned Murray Hall, on Forest Road in Marlow NH, since 2002. Through the decades the building has been a Methodist Church, a Universalist Church, the Excelsior Grange, and finally a workshop and a storage facility for PC Connection. In 2002, Gallup & Hall conveyed the land and building to the Society, which immediately set upon its restoration. Click here to read about restoration progress and how you can help.
Although there are persistent rumors that Marlow is named for the English poet, Christopher Marlowe, it seems more likely that, like many New England towns, Marlow is named after a place and the name "Marlow" recalls Marlowe, England. Perhaps some of our early settlers came from that region.
A New Hampshire source supports this view: New Hampshire: A History, Resources, Attractions, and Its People volume 1 by Hobart Pillsbury. He wrote, "It was re-granted in 1761 to William Noyes and others and named Marlow after an English town" (Pillsbury, p 234). Genealogical research on the origins of Marlow's settlers might shed light on the issue.
