Journey through downtown Troy like never before on the Downtown Troy Walking History tours. Hosted by Troy Main Street and the Troy Local History Library, these tours offer a glimpse of what downtown Troy looked like years ago, what these buildings have become, and what future transformations may look like.
“This year, the tours will be more experiential,” said Nicole Loy, Executive Director of Troy Main Street. “For instance, one of our stops is the site of a former candy store, so guests will be offered a tasty treat as they learn the history of the building.”
In addition to providing information on the past, the Walking History tours will also showcase the buildings as they are and offer sneak previews of spaces inside several buildings that are currently being transformed.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to see what Troy was like and what current projects are being developed to make the downtown even better,” said Loy.
The tour includes buildings that house the following businesses: The Troy Foundation, First United Methodist Church, The Caroline, The 3 Weird Sisters Studio, The former Tavern, Morris House, Mayflower Arts Center, the Troy Local History Library, and the 405 Building.
The Walking History tours will begin at 5:30pm on Friday, April 27. Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased by calling 937-339-5455 or by stopping by the Troy Main Street office at 405 SW Public Square, Suite 231.
