Work continues at the Troy Historical Society; ideas are needed

Work continues at the Troy Historical Society; ideas are neededPictured, on the top, is the Troy Historical Society building before work began. It had a low roofline, short wall and windows. The bottom photo shows the new tall roof, and the walls are taller. Notice the green stripe on the top of the wall represents the amount of wall added to make a taller wall for the murals.

Work continues on renovations for the Troy Historical Society’s new home on Fenner Avenue. While work progresses inside, the outside structural work needed for the Trojan Wall of History is completed.

The windows have been blocked over to enhance the inside programs. This makes a better home for murals on the outside. A taller solid wall will provide a great view for the town.

So the next question is what will make up the scenes of the past? What do you think should be remembered?  

The Troy Historical Society is asking the community to submit their suggestions for possible scenes from the past. Locations, buildings and businesses are all categories to consider. The people and places that everyone can be proud of, that represent the past that our youth should know about and remember.

How can you make your suggestions known? You can call (570) 297-2298 and leave your thoughts, or email them to Info@HistoryOfTroy.com.

The easiest way is to stop by the location on Fenner Avenue any day of the week, between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and talk it over with members of the society.  

It is the hopes of the society to have many ideas to choose from. If they do, they will come back to the public a vote. But they first have to know those initial ideas. 

Pisgah, The Pomeroy Bank, The Opera House, Horse Racing at Alparon, the Fair, old businesses of the town, buildings that are gone, Henry Davison, Pat Ballard and more.

What can you think of? Let them know your thoughts so that later this spring they have choices!
