The City of Troy is located in Rensselaer County and sits on the Hudson River. Part of what is commonly called the Capital District includes Troy, Schenectady, and Albany New York. Troys official motto is “Ilium fuit” which means "Ilium was, Troy is". However the unofficial motto of the city is “Enjoy Troy” which can be seen on bumper stickers, keychains, signs, and graffiti.
Troy is home to the oldest private engineering and technical university in America, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) which was founded in 1824. The American industrial revolution took hold in this area thanks to the confluence of major waterways and land that supported water power. At the turn of the 20th century Troy was the 4th wealthiest city in America. Thanks to this time the city is stilled filled with beautiful Victorian architecture, elaborate private homes, and amazing stained glass windows. The Troy City Music Hall and Troy Savings Bank Music Hall are located within Troy and date back to the 1800’s.
Before being settled by the Dutch the land of Troy was mainly occupied by the Mahican Indian tribes. Troy officially became named Troy in 1789 with a vote by the people. Prior to being called Troy it was named Pafraets Dael,
Troy is known as the "Collar City" as well as “the home of Uncle Sam”. It’s referred to as the collar city due to its rich history in collar, shirt, and textile production. It is known as the home of Uncle Sam, the progenitor of our nation's symbol, thanks to Samuel Wilson. When you think about Uncle Sam you most likely picture the iconic “Uncle Sam Wants You!” posted with a man with a beard decked out in a red, white, and blue outfit. Sam Wilson was part owner of a meat packing business in Troy and they supplied the federal government with pork, beef, whiskey and salt. When he would approve a barrel after inspecting it he would stamp the barrels with the letters “US/EA”. Dock workers would jokingly say that the US stood for Uncle Sam on their deliveries. When these dock workers became soldiers during the war of 1812 they were eating this same meat supplied by Uncle Sam and the legend was born and spread throughout the armed forces. The legend grew until Uncle Sam and the United States became synonymous. In 1961, the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate unanimously passed a law which proclaimed that Samuel Wilson of Troy, New York, was the progenitor of the nation's symbol, Uncle Sam, and that Troy is the official home of Uncle Sam, the bill was signed by President John F. Kennedy.
