Troy Museum and Historical Village

On the corner of Wattles Rd (17 Mile) and Livernois, stands the recreated Troy Historical Village.  Volunteers have cleverly worked over the years to gather all these wonderful buildings in one area.   It's like a walk back in time.  Pictured here is an 1837 church with stained glass windows over 100 years old. It's a wonderful intimate place for wedding services today!  Visitors are encouraged to sit at desks in the Poppleton one-room school house built in 1877. The general store is a recreation of the one that was built in 1832, but demolished almost 50 years ago.  Also in the village is a beautiful Greek revival home dating back to 1832, a log cabin from the 1840's and a very cool blacksmith shop filled with memorabilia from a bygone era and much more. Some very knowledgeable docents with a passion for history love to show you around.
