Crofton’s 50th Anniversary Calendar – 1964-2014


It’s been 50 years since Crofton’s first home-owners moved into their new home. They’re seen here at closing with developer Hamilton Crawford, standing left. (Photo: Source Crawford Corporation)

A busy committee of volunteers has been lining up special events and collecting photos and stories to share with the 25,000+ people who now call Crofton home. You may have seen some of these photos during the presentation by Crofton Village Garden Club at Crofton Country Club, as part of Crofton’s 50th Anniversary Holiday House Tour. By the way, you can click on any photo to enlarge it.
