Crofton Maryland

Crofton is in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, located just west of the state capital Annapolis. Crofton is located 24 miles  south of Baltimore, 9.8 miles west of Annapolis, and 24 miles east-northeast of Washington, D.C. The community was established in 1964.  population approx 27,348

In 1963, after the Crawford Corporation accumulated over 1,600 acres of land, it announced that it would build a new community called Crofton. This new town and planned community was founded at the same time as Reston, Virginia (April 17, 1964) and Columbia, Maryland (1967). Crofton would be anchored by a community golf course, which later became the Crofton Country Club. Crofton was officially founded in the fall of 1964. The company considered picking an English name for the new town that "sounds well and implies that this is a pleasant place to live." It ended up picking the name "Crofton", named after a small township in Cumberland County, England. The English town was originally called Croft-town, derived from the word "Croft", as the town standing upon the Crofts. Originally an exclusive gated community, Crofton's gates were opened and they now only serve as a symbol for the community.

"100 Best Places to Live"
In July 2007 Crofton was named by Money magazine as one of "100 Best Places to Live" in the United States. Crofton placed 72nd out of 100 cities on the list. It was selected for its relative anonymity while still boasting many major amenities, excellent schools, and sought-after location.
