What started as farmland in the 19th century blossomed into an energetic and centralized metropolis. As the most populated city in Oakland County, Troy has developed beautiful and affordable neighborhoods full of 20th-century and new-construction homes to entice new homeowners. Its years-long development eventually paid off, earning it a spot on CNN Money’s “Best Places to Live” list in 2008.
Troy may not have a typical downtown where locals gather, but it makes up for it with convenient freeway access, plenty of quality shopping and dining along the Big Beaver Road thoroughfare, acres of parks to enjoy, and the interactive Historic Village.
