History & History Related Items

Troy history:

Troy began sometime after 1882 as it built up around a railway station. About two miles away was another community called Troy. It became known as Old Troy and the new community as New Troy. Both communities were around for many years. New Troy grew to about 250 residents by 1884 with a number of businesses and establishments. Unfortunately, a tornado hit in 1886 but the town was able to bounce back. Troy became known as a shipping point for much of the area’s ranchers and farmers.
