Exhibit dates: February 26, to December 17, 2016.
The historical society, at 57 Second St., is open from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday to Saturday.
“Visions of Troy: 200 Years A City” starts the bicentennial celebration of Troy’s establishment as a city in 1816. The exhibit captures Troy’s history in 50-year increments. The years 1816, 1866, 1916, 1966 and 2016 are used as touch points. Troy has been in the heart of U.S. history from giving the country Samuel Wilson as the model for Uncle Sam through the Industrial Revolution, when it was one of the nation’s richest communities, to the present.
The exhibit also features the restored neon signs from the now closed South End Tavern. Here is a Times Union Article about the exhibit.
