1. Wattles House Marker
Inscription. Harry Bennett Wattles purchased this house in 1876 about thirty years after its construction and added a veranda and a second story in 1909. Settling in Troy around 1837, the Wattles Family has been active in civic and social affairs. Here on this property once known as Sunnycrest Dairy, Wattles began to use progressive farming methods. His registered Jersey cows won numerous prizes. This house, Wattles, and his descendants who have lived here, provide Troy with the legacy of a community-minded family.
