The charming Village of Croghan is located in the Towns of Croghan and New Bremen in Lewis County in Northern New York State.  The area was first settled by members of the Oneida tribe of the Iroquois Nation.  Immigrants from Switzerland, Germany and France settled here and in 1841 named our town after George Croghan, a hero in the War of 1812  The Village of Croghan was incorporated in 1906. Much of the early industry was centered on the forests and the Beaver River.  Logs were sent down the river to the sawmills powered by the river. The present Croghan Island Mill Lumber Company has been in operation for more than 150 years.  

The 2010 Census shows a village population of 618 with 288 occupied housing units. 

Croghan's ambience and location between the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario and the Adirondack mountains attract significant number of visitors to our local shops and museums. Among the most visited shops are Good Ol' Wishy's (a Soda Fountain), the Croghan Meat Market (home of the well known Croghan Bologna), and the Croghan Candy Kitchen.
