CROTON. The village of Croton straddles the dividing line (Rte 579) between Delaware and Raritan Townships, and is located just north of Highway 12. The old road that ran from Flemington to Frenchtown passed through the village, and is known today as Old Croton Road. It was once a thriving place, with stores, a mill, a blacksmith shop, a church and a school. Many of the original buildings have been lost to fires, and the village has lost some of its charm thanks to the impact of a county road running through it.
