Troy is a quaint community with a small town atmosphere. Its historical downtown acts as a nucleus of connectivity and activity in the Uwharrie region. We welcome visitors and residents to our region, and our vibrant main street marketplace enhances the region's outstanding quality of life.
Stop by the Uwharrie Mercantile for some cappuccinos or knick-knacks, get a haircut at a third generation barber shop, or taste the best ‘maters you ever had in your life at the Montgomery County Farmers’ Market. This quaint town is surrounded by beautiful Uwharrie scenery. It’s home to multiple festivals, and bands are often playing at the Amphitheater downtown. Troy is also where you’ll find the Discover Uwharrie Welcome Center.
The Town of Troy, like the rest of Montgomery County, was settled primarily by Scottish immigrants. In 1852, Angus McCaskill, one of the early settlers, donated a tract of 50 acres to the community to serve as the town proper. Until a legislative decree changed the name, the community was known as West's Oldfield. That same decree also located the courthouse in the new community and made Troy the business center of a thriving county.
