No school today!
50 years ago, the day would see 50 kids on the hill behind Croman sled riding.
75 years ago, the day would see 50 kids ice skating on punks pond and kids sled riding down John Street.

If you have family diaries and bibles, or you’re cleaning out an estate and trying to decide about papers for a family, reach out to us for help.
We keep our history.
We offer translation support and duplication for families.
We can relate it to other historical information in our area.
And we can help reading what can be legibly hard to understand writings from long ago.

Don’t throw things out without asking for our support.
Don’t through out the treasure of our past.

Troy Engine and Machine Company gifted the band stand on Davison Green to our town over a hundred years ago.
We think it’s a wonderful part of our town so we decorated it to match our town at Christmas.

Troy Historical Society has research opportunities for several projects underway for 2022. If you are interested in working on a particular research project reach out and message us.

Some of the planned programs are:

1) We are filling out the histories of our veterans.
2) Documenting the history of education in the Troy District area.
3) Interviews with citizens pertaining to first hand knowledge of events in our area.
4) Geographic mapping of family settlements in our area.
5) Histories of specific current or past businesses in our area.

If you have an interest in any of these or if there is something you think would be a great topic for publication, message us for more information on opportunities.

Our Story

SPRING, SUMMER, FALL or WINTER CLEANING?? Don't let our local history slip through the cracks. Many attics and basements around the area contain relics of our rich history. These items are scattering to the wind or being disposed of at an alarming rate. Executors may not know what they are throwing away or simply do not know the historical value of papers, documents, ledgers, letterheads, diaries, booklets, photographs, glass plate negatives, scrapbooks, Bibles and yearbooks. Even videos, dvd's, old tapes, display our past. Local artist's and local author's are part of our history.
