Enjoy Troy Day

Troy Name Newspaper AnnouncementOn the evening of Jan. 5, 1789, a group of “Freeholders” on the eastern banks of the Hudson River met in a tavern to officially rename the place “TROY.” The next day they advertised their decision in the Lansingburgh and Albany newspapers.

Two hundred and twenty-six years later, Troy Mayor Lou Rosamilia proclaimed Jan. 6 to be henceforth known as “Enjoy Troy Day” in recognition of all who keep up the beauty, and warmth and conviviality in the place.
