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.

2/11/2017 - Dialing 315 before local phone calls begins today

Beginning on today's date, everyone within the 315 area code must dial 315 before their phone number if dialing locally. If dialing long-distance, you must dial 1-315- and then the remainder of the number if dialing within the 315 area code. Emergency numbers like 911, 411, etc do not require the area code to be dialed before the number.

The new 680 area code for new phone numbers being added in what has always been exclusively 315 area will begin being introduced on March 11, just a month after the mandatory area code dialing takes affect.
