1. Township Hall Marker
Inscription.  After the War of 1812 farmers from New York and other eastern states settled in Troy Township. This building became the seat of local government in 1927. Troy remained an agricultural community until 1955 when township leaders led the effort to incorporate Troy as a city. Within 25 years the wheat fields and dairy farms were gone. Subdivisions, malls, and skyscrapers replaced them. Look beyond the farm-hands in the photo to find this building.
