    Troy: From Wilderness to a Great City

    Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 1:00pm

    Loraine Campbell, Executive Director of the Troy Historic Village traces the development of Troy from wilderness to becoming the largest city in Oakland County. Before it was the site of shopping centers, corporations, and universities, Troy was a pioneer settlement comprised of farms and small knots of buildings at simple crossroads. School bells and harvesting seasons punctuated simple country lives. By the end of World War II, subdivisions replaced farms, the township was incorporated — and gracious homes and new businesses replaced clapboard structures which was a signifi cant step in the development of Troy, our beautiful neighboring city.
