    Welcome to Crofton, Maryland

    Crofton, Maryland was found in 1964. In 1963, the Crawford Corporation gained 1,600 acres of land, which had decided that the town would be built for the workers and their families to live in. It is located 24 miles south of Baltimore, 14 miles west of Annapolis, and 24 miles east-northeast of Washignton D.C.

    The original community of Crofton was built within a triangle formed by three major roads: Crain Highway (Maryland Route 3) to the northwest, Davidsonville Road (Maryland Route 424) to the northeast, and Defense Highway (Maryland Route 450) to the south. Within the triangle, Crofton Parkway, a loop road 3.5 miles (5.6 km) long, encircles the center of the community. Crofton Parkway is the scene of yearly parades, two of the community’s five elementary schools, the Town Hall, Village Green, community events, Crofton Country Club, and walkers, joggers and bikers around the loop. Crofton also has a community pool, the Crofton Swim and Tennis Club (CSTC), which is restricted to those inhabitants of the triangle.

    Noteably, in 2007 and 2011 Crofton was named in Money Magazines “100 Best Places to Live.”
