Second Story Secrets

Downtown Troy – Prouty Plaza
1 West Main Street | Troy, OH 45373

What’s Upstairs in Downtown? That question led TCW, in collaboration with Leadership Troy, to create the Second Story Secrets Tour in 2014. Now back for the sixth time the tour has grown and become better and better.  The 2021 tour will be held on November 6, 2021 from 3pm-7pm.  The tour offers a rare chance to slip inside the upper floors and little known spaces around downtown.  After picking up your map and tour brochure at the starting location, participants can visit the locations in any order. Volunteers are on hand at each location and make sure you come back to our starting point to relax and enjoy refreshments including appetizers, desserts, beer, wine, and other hot and cold non-alcoholic drinks.  Confirmed 2021 tour locations include:

  • Starting Location TBD – START YOUR TOUR HERE and enjoy refreshments throughout the tour. ,

  • The Troy Foundation- 216 W. Franklin Street

  • The First United Church of Christ

  • CAS Building- 1 E. Main Street

  • Level MB (Old Troy Daily News)

  • Apartments at 24-26 Short Street (next to the Miami County Courthouse)

  • Local History Library (Troy-Miami County Public Library) 100 W. Main Street.

  • More locations are being added- so check back soon! And we’ll also have…..The Secret Location!

The Second Story Secrets committee is working hard at making the tour a memorable experience for everyone. Please check back often for tour updates. Please remember that Second Story Secrets is a walking tour. Wear comfortable shoes and plan to cross city streets and use the stairs. We encourage our participants to wear a mask while inside buildings. The tour, while open to children, is recommended for those 18 and older due to its historic nature. We also recommend that participants make a night of it and plan to eat dinner at one of our great Troy restaurants!
