TROY ( NH ) HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The Troy (NH) Historical Society is a small society that provides for a town with about 2200 residents. It was founded around 1996 by several interested citizens who were concerned about preserving Troy's history. The members were, and still are, volunteers who juggle between their jobs and giving of their free time to devote to the society.
The Society has collected many artifacts that provide a good representation of Troy's history as a mill town with a diverse population. It houses a museum in the upstairs of a building, Kimball Hall, which is provided by the town, and shares the building with other town organizations. . The members assemble theme exhibits to promote interest in the museum and Troy's history. The museum also contains several pieces of written materials such as old town reports, yearbooks, certificates, etc. for research purposes. We welcome researchers to use our resources.
The society has no income other than what is donated by the town, membership drives, and fundraising events. It relies on donations from fundraising events to cover the cost of liability insurance and any public relation programming that is done throughout the year. The society members have co-sponsored programs with the town library, joined a local business in an annual holiday cookie tour, and hold an annual open house in October. At present we are working on raising funds for Troy's 200th anniversary in 2015.
The museum is open the first three Saturdays of each month from 8:00a.m. to noon or by appointment. We are open the third Thursday of each month from 1:00p.m. to 4:00p.m., during the summer months, including through October. The Troy Historical Society meets on the third Thursday of the month at 4:00p.m. at Kimball Hall and our meetings are open to the public. There are no meetings during the winter months of December, January, and February.
