Crofton, Maryland, is located in Anne Arundel County, home of the U.S. Naval Academy, Fort George G. Meade, NSA, BWI, and Northrop Grumman; about 35 minutes from Washington, D.C. and Baltimore Maryland.
Crofton is a "community," however, and not just a subdivision or zipcode . The distinction is in the residents who make Crofton one of Money Magazine's Top 100 Best Places to live.
One of the residents responsible for making Crofton, Maryland, the community it is today is Kaye Callahan.
As a young mom in the late 60's/early 70's, Kaye spearheaded the effort to line Crofton Parkway with flowering cherry trees and other sections of the community with Bradford Callery Pear trees. Crofton residents have enjoyed the fruits of her efforts (or should I say "blooms" of her efforts) for four decades. Here are a few pictures to show you April in Crofton, Maryland, thanks to Kaye Callahan.
Don't you love our Cherry Trees?
Thanks again, Kaye, for bringing such beauty to a community that could have been just another suburban subdivision of cookie-cutter homes. It truly is the people - not just the location or the homes - that make Crofton a special place to live!
If you're relocating to the Baltimore-Washington area for a new job at Fort George G. Meade, Andrews AFB, the U.S. Naval Academy, BWI, NSA, NASA Goddard, Northrop Grumman or anywhere in the D.C.-Baltimore area, consider Crofton.
