Clara Haag (left,) was present at the charter meeting of the Troy Historical Society in February 1966 and served as the organization’s first president. Following William Caswell’s death in 1965, the group considered options for preserving the community’s oldest home, including the suggestion to relocate it. Clara Haag recognized the financial challenge this presented. She stated to a reporter, “It would cost a fortune to move the blooming thing. Where to get that kind of money? We don’t have it.
