Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
Moving along with Everything Croton's many requests, we bring you the long overdue CROTON WELCOME WAGON/NEWCOMERS CLUB circa 1960's. With thanks of course to the outstanding archives maintained by the volunteers of The Croton Historical Society. Click on the photos.

Old Croton was best in some ways. No political agendas and self aggrandizement.ReplyDelete
There's still a lot good happening here but so much time has to be devoted to and paying for cr*p it's a wonder how people can even stay here anymore.Delete
I think the last time Croton really was a fun place was in the 60's, 70's and early 80's. It's become so p.c. here it's troubling. And so much of old Croton has moved because of the ever increasing taxes.ReplyDelete
First I'd like to thank this blog for posting so many great stories about our village. Second, I may be waxing sentimental but it does seem as if the village, especially elected officials, were more for their neighbors and true public service and not their own personal gain like it is these days. The mayor's health insurance for one example, now only given up because of the public outcry. The village wasn't just a place for "starter homes" like westchester Magazine recently said but a place that people put down roots in for generations. It's all too different now and the taxes to pay for all this non related to the village stuff is draining the life out of the Croton.Delete
