About Troy

Troy is a historic city located in upstate New York, situated on the eastern bank of the Hudson River. The city was founded in the late 18th century and quickly became an important industrial center, particularly in the iron and steel industries. Troy's location on the Hudson River made it a key transportation hub for the region, with goods being transported by both water and rail. The city's proximity to major trade routes and its access to the Erie Canal helped fuel its growth and prosperity.

One of the most notable features of Troy's transportation history is the Troy Union Railroad. This railroad, established in the mid-19th century, connected the various industrial areas of the city and played a crucial role in the transportation of freight. The Troy Union Railroad had an extensive network of tracks that reached all corners of the city, allowing for efficient movement of goods between factories and the riverfront. Today, the railroad tracks have been repurposed into a recreational trail known as the Uncle Sam Bikeway, providing residents and visitors with a scenic route for walking, running, and cycling.
