Situated at the base of Mount Monadnock, in Cheshire County, New Hampshire, the town of Troy was initially part of Marlborough. Settled in 1762, and incorporated as an independent town in 1815, the town once included parts of Fitzwilliam, Swanzey, and Richmond. For more than a century, Troy’s economy was centered around Troy Mills, which started manufacturing horse blankets in the mid-1800s, and declared bankruptcy in late 2001. Several members of the Samuel Wilson family were residents of Troy. Samuel Wilson is better known as Uncle Sam. The town center of Troy is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Troy Village District.
