The small town of Croydon, in Sullivan County, New Hampshire, is home to Corbin Park, one of the largest private game reserves in the state. Croydon Peak is the highest point in town, at 2,760 feet above sea level. The town is situated on the highlands between the Connecticut River and the Merrimack River. Croydon was incorporated in 1763, and named for the suburb of London, England. The town was originally square, but annexations in 1808 and 1809 have altered its geographical form. The town depicted in the 1906 novel, Coniston, was based on Croydon, and the author, Winston Churchill, lived most of his adult life there.
