  • 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.
  • Went on a 1st grade field trip. School teacher got way into the role. Interesting place.
  • Beautifully maintained historic properties from early Troy history.
  • Nice historic location and buildings to walk into. There's a Michigan historic marker around the entrance and 3 more on Livernois with-in 1/2 mile of one another.
  • A nice small outdoor museum good for families. It's too small for an all-day visit, but it's interesting for an hour or two.
