Troy Flood History

"At Troy no levees broke; the water simply rose from the river and covered much of the town with what one observer called ‘a gigantic lake’"

Floodwater could not escape the neighborhood south of downtown due to a railroad embankment that blocked the flow of water. A team of citizens discovered the problem and decided to destroy the embankment and release water.

"Using the slogan “Troy will take care of her own,” a citizens’ relief committee there canvassed the community for subscriptions to a relief fund and soon raised more than $10,000".
