The Mohicans called it Paanpaack (Field of Corn). The Dutch called it Pafraetss Dael and Lubberde Land (“A Lazy Man’s Paradise”) but to Jacob I, Jacob D. and Matthias Vanderheyden, it was simply their farmland and their home.
After the American Revolution the settlement of nearby Lansingburgh encouraged the Vanderheydens to lay out their land into building lots. The Yankee Invasion from New England saw the Burdens, Vail’s, Heartts, and others fill in those building lots with businesses and enterprises in a short time. From meager beginnings Troy went from a farming community to become one of the most important
industrial cities in America by the early 19th century.
Troy became the center for bell making, cast iron stoves, iron and steel, science and education, and the creator of a billion dollar collar and cuff empire during these past two centuries.
Innovation and invention was the trademark of Troy until the 1950s.
“Made in Troy” was known around the world.
Now celebrating its 200th year, it is time to relive that history and look back at some glimpses of what made Troy a legend on the Hudson.
Exhibition continues through September 28
