Celebrating 50 Years!

2016 marks the 50th Anniversary Year of the Troy Historical Society and its commitment to:

  • Conserve local history
  • Connect members of our regional community with one another and our shared heritage and
  • Continue to stimulate interest in the past, context for our lives today, and knowledge as we face future challenges.

Throughout the year, this anniversary page will feature virtual exhibits that showcase the artifacts, archive collections, and images that THS curates at the Troy Historic Village.  We will also introduce new programs at the Village that will enhance our visitors’ experiences and opportunities throughout the year to meet other Villagers; discuss history in the making; and celebrate our organization’s Jubilee.

Our 50th Anniversary Party. On August 18 we had our 50th Anniversary Party of the Troy Historical Society. We’ll gathered in the Village for refreshments, dinner, special guests, recognitions, and good fun.

These are images of Troy Historical Society members and volunteers who worked together, beginning in 1966 to conserve the history of Troy Township from the earliest pioneers through the agricultural era in the 1800s.

During its first fifty years, the Troy Historical Society worked to save the community’s history by preserving vintage buildings slated for demolition. While historians advocate preservation on a building’s original foundation, this was not possible during Troy’s building boom. So between 1968 and 2010 THS moved eight buildings to the Troy Historic Village. Then THS members, the City of Troy, and members of the community all contributed time and dollars to restore each structure. These photos illustrate the story and journey the buildings.
