The mission of the Croton Historical Society is to discover, collect, preserve and communicate the rich history of the Village of Croton-on-Hudson.


Since our founding in 1972 the Croton Historical Society has been preserving the history of our beloved village and sharing it through exhibits, books, DVDs and newsletters. We’ve assisted authors, filmmakers, genealogists, students and local residents in researching a wide variety of topics. Our growing archival collection includes yearbooks, newspapers, maps, photographs and one of the largest collections of material on the construction of the New Croton Dam.

Our office is open on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. or by appointment.

You can see our current exhibition whenever the Municipal Building is open and purchase our books, t-shirts, coverlets, tote bags and other Croton-related items at the main Village office on the second floor if we are closed. Proceeds from the sale of these products help support the Croton Historical Society.
