Marlton is a census-designated place and unincorporated community located within Evesham Township in Burlington County, New Jersey, United States. PH-32, a Project Nike missile base from the Cold War, was located near Cherokee High School.
Marlton was founded by Welsh and English farmers beginning in 1676. The name Marlton first appeared in the early 19th century. The name is derived from marl clay, which is commonly found in the local soil. The discovery of the marl content helped local business and farmers, and caused the first “building boom”, occurring in the 1830s and 1840s.

In 2010, the circle was completely eliminated and replaced with a grade-separated interchange where Route 73 crosses over Route 70. The new traffic pattern was completed in late 2011.
