The Troy Academy Company was formed circa 1800 in order to build a school. In 1809, the Troy Academy was erected and opened to its first students. The Troy Hills School occupies the site where the academy stood.
This collection contains the records of the Troy Academy Company, dating from 1800 to circa 1927. The records include account statements, a charter, incoming letters, minutes, notes, and financial records.
