  • Adorable place. Very cleaned and well maintained. Beautifully landscaped. I visited on a field trip and it was a great program for the kids.
  • Good educational place for children. People are nice. I love this general store!
  • Quaint and comfortable to visit. Troy has done a reasonably good job of preserving historical landmarks from yesteryears. Go if you have a chance and if its open (abbreviated visiting times). A friend of ours had her wedding in the simple Troy Chapel and had her reception catered on the grounds of the site. Good time and great atmosphere.
  • Museum may be a little too much to call it, but nevertheless a great local attraction for young children.
  • Went on a 1st grade field trip. School teacher got way into the role. Interesting place.
