My first stop was the Troy Town Hall originally built about 100 yards from this site.

The next stop was the Old Troy Church, built in 1837 for the Protestant Episcopal congregation organized in 1827, then later sold to the Methodist Episcopal congregation in 1868. It was in use until 1963 when a new Methodist church was built.
Methodist Church parsonage was next to the church, and had been in use until 1963! I am sure the pastor's wife was thrilled to move into a modern building, but nothing could match the ambiance of this historic Gothic building.

The Poppleton School was built in 1877 at Maple and Crooks. As Troy grew the school was saved and transported to the village in the 1970s.
Built in 1832, the Casewell House is registered with the National Register of Historic Places.

The 1840s log cabin was such fun to see.
In the main building was a quilt that really caught my eye, Life is a Journey by Betty Chan. I was thrilled to find she was in the church as a docent and we had a long talk. I will write a separate blog post about the story behind this quilt.
