Croton-On-Hudson, New York
Croton-On-Hudson is a village in Westchester County, New York. It is within the town of Cortlandt. The village is approximately forty miles north of Manhattan. Croton-On-Hudson covers roughly eleven square miles and has a population of 8,300, as of February of 2022. The area was first settled by Dutch migrants in 1645. The village’s growth was attributed to many nearby construction projects, such as the Croton Dam, the New Croton Dam, and the Croton Aqueduct. These were built to supply New York City with fresh water. By the 1800’s, many Irish, German and Italian immigrants moved to the area. Further village development occurred through the mid to late 1800’s due to the expansion of the New York Central Railroad. The village was also the location of a service facility for the railroad.
