Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
For your Saturday enjoyment, some miscellaneous items from CROTON LANDING in the 1870's. Courtesy of the Everything Croton elves. There's a brick makers strike, Samuel Sinclair of the Herald Tribune, an excerpt from Appleton's about Van Cortlandt Manor---Colonel Brant, the Mohawk Chief, and the documentation that Washington, Lafayette, Dr. Franklin, early Methodist preachers and other notables of the day were frequent visitors there.
