The elongated village street, containing many preserved farmhouses, mainly dates back to the period of the Empire and also includes the 18th-century Baroque Church of St. Václav.

The first mention of the village is in 1229. The "Chrupi" settlement, later known as Krupai in German, was one of the oldest inhabited settlements in the region. There used to be a church here, belonging to the parish administration of Bezděz. In the 14th century, Krupá came into the possession of the monastery near Mnichovo Hradiště. However, the monastery was destroyed at the beginning of the Hussite Wars and Krupá came under Kuřivody administration. When the first numbering of the houses was established in 1775, the village had 23 house numbers. In 1766, Krupá was divided into two parts, e.g. Horní Krupá (Upper Krupá) and Dolní Krupá (Lower Krupá). The local people mostly lived from agriculture and forestry. Development of handicrafts occurred in the 19th century. Before 1989, Dolní Krupá formed the community area, also for the village of Rokyta, which became independent in 1993.

The village has its own coat of arms — a blue shield with golden Ostrevs (cut branches) and a golden Ratiště (pike nozzle) with a Czech emblem: one silver rose on each side of the shield and also at the bottom of the shield, with a red centre and green leaves. The village emblem is based on the common coat of arms – the golden Ratiště and Ostrev are easily transformed into the design of yellow stripes.
