Though the tour is largely self-guided, you might run into staff on the grounds and, of course, in the main building. They'll be happy to answer questions about the buildings and their uses. For example, the one-room school was, unbelievably, in service until the 1970s. They can relate more history of the building including what uses they had for it... 更多
We were there for a wedding celebration and the place was absolutely perfect for it. Aside from the tents and all the wedding decorations, I enjoyed walking through the historic village and soaking in the atmosphere of the place.

Troy historical museum is a collection of old Troy buildings from way back all arranged in a circle around a small pavilion. I went as a chaperone with middle school kids, so we had a guided tour which I can believe is the only good way to see this place.
Have been here many times with my Girl Scouts. The Village offers great programs that we have really enjoyed. It is also fun to walk around and discover the historical jewels here!

There is a shop onsite where you can buy related gifts. You... 更多

This was a neat way to kill time between the ceremony and the reception. It was beautiful on the grounds and would be great for a wedding. They have a gazebo in... 更多
I was a chaperone for my grandson's class trip to the Troy Historical Museum. Attendants were in costume and "in character". The children loved learning about life prior to the 1900s. In today's tech media obsessed world, it was refreshing to see how the children embraced the hard rules and discipline of a by-gone year. They children said they loved... 更多
Poppleton, the one room school house has been restored to it's original glory, along with the Old Troy Church, blacksmith shop, and several other buildings. Great place to visit for a quiet afternoon.
