The town of Croghan in Upstate New York sits just northeast of the
Lewis County seat,
Lowville and was settled in the 1830s. The town was formed in 1841 and it is
bordered by both Jefferson and Herkimer counties.
Named after the famous war hero of the war of 1812, Col.
George Croghan, the town of Croghan has numerous communities and locations
therein including Beaver Falls, Belfort, the village of Croghan, Indian River,
and Naumburg among others. It is home to the American Maple Museum and Hall of
Fame, the Oswegatchie Educational Center, and the Railway Historical
Society of Northern New York Museum. We are fortunate to have two libraries in
the town. One is located on Main Street in the village of Croghan and the second
is located on Lewis Street, Beaver Falls. Both are free for the public to use
and each has computers for public use. The predominant industries and businesses in the town of
Croghan are construction, paper, agriculture, forestry, and fishing and hunting.
