The original township of Marmora was named in 1820 for the Latin word for marble, while the adjoining Township of Lake was named for Viscount Gerard Lake. The two townships were joined to form the single municipality of Marmora and Lake[when?]. The village of Marmora separated from the township and was incorporated as a separate municipality in 1901.
Mining played an important role in the development of the area. Iron mining was particularly important in the area. Other minerals extracted from township mines include copper, lead, silver, gold and lithographic limestone. Today, talc and dolomite are processed in the municipality at the site of the former Bethlehem Steel Corporation iron ore open pit mine.
In 1998, the township expanded through an amalgamation of the Village of Deloro.
The current municipality was formed in 2001 through an amalgamation of the Village of Marmora and the existing Township of Marmora and Lake.
