Troy

It was great to see the sun this week while I was touring Troy. Troy is a beautiful and historic town. There were very few roads we that traveled where didn’t see magnificent views of Mt. Monadnock…

One of the best views of Mt. Monadnock we found was at Monadnock Berries …

While we were there, I visited with some of the animals…

I can’t wait to go back during the picking season!

There are quite a lot of snowmobile trails passing thru Troy. I love the trail groomers…

This groomer was parked near the historic Cheshire Railroad Depot, in front of the old freight sheds. The depot is still standing as is the Kimball Hotel…

Troy’s travel and tourism plan has excellent information about the history of Troy, including a map of the New England Mill Town Walking Tour

I found plenty of scenic farms during my tour…

While I was touring Troy, I had the opportunity to visit The Inn at East Hill Farm. Several of my Facebook followers assured me it was not to be missed! And they were right! East Hill Farm is a working farm and the Inn allows guests to learn about the inner workings of a farm and farm life.  Jennifer showed me around the farm and the inn. The inn is absolutely beautiful. but it was the animals that really captured my attention…

New arrival at the farm. March heralds the beginning of lambing season.

As I was leaving, Jennifer told me about a waterfall, not too far away…

I think that Troy has something for everyone; scenic views, history, hiking, berry picking, working farms…the list goes on and on.

You can find all of the statistical data about Troy on the state’s website or visit the town’s website  for more information.

10 Comments on “Troy”

    I need to get back to Troy and climb Gap Mountain. There is also a waterfall called “seven falls” that I’ve been trying to find, with no luck. Thanks for the information. Your posts remind me how much there is right in my own backyard that I haven’t seen.

      Since I have been writing this blog, I’ve learned there is SO much “right in my own backyard”! If you click on the link, Troy’s travel and tourism, there is some information about Seven Falls, as well as Colburn Falls. I plan on going back in the spring to find both falls. I hope you enjoy your hike up Gap Mountain!

      • New Hampshire Garden Solutions March 18, 2013 at 10:58 am #

        Thanks-I’ve been to the websites you mention and others, and they tell you everything you need to know about the falls-except where they are. I have a feeling they might be on private property, hence the reluctance to tell anyone how to find them. I hope you have better luck than I have!

      • Touring NH March 18, 2013 at 10:59 am #

        I’ll do a little digging, if I find them, I’ll post it on my Revisited page!

        I also meant to say that your woodpecker is probably a pileated woodpecker. It’s the only one that makes large, rectangular holes with rounded corners. It’s a big bird-crow size or larger.

      • Touring NH March 18, 2013 at 11:16 am #

        A pileated was my guess. I wish I’d had the chance to see it. I love watching them! They remind me of Woody Woodpecker, lol

    Laura, your photos inspire! I have not explored Troy yet but now I definitely will go! Thanks for the great posts. I love the pig picture.

    • Touring NH March 18, 2013 at 11:37 am #

      Thank you Martha! That pig had such personality and he was quite interested in what I was doing with the camera. I think he liked “hamming it up”. I know, bad pun. ~Laura

        Excellent, execellent, truly beautiful pics you have captured of Troy also. Thank you!

      • Touring NH March 18, 2013 at 5:07 pm #

        Thank you Jean! I can’t wait for summer to go back to Monadnock Berries! And East Hill Farm just let me know that they had 2 sets of twins born in the last couple days, have to go back for that!

I'd love to know what you think!
