Beacon Hill is an unincorporated community located within Marlboro Township in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States.[1][2] The community is named for a nearby hill, in-turn named because it was a lookout point towards the Raritan Bay and beacons on the hill were used to warn residents of impending British troops in the American Revolutionary War.[3] Located on the north face of the hill are housing developments and Marlboro Memorial Middle School. East of the summit, New Jersey Route 34 runs through the area through a commercial zone.[2]
