Troy

The Junction of Virginia

The community of Troy lies to the west of US Route 15 and is just south of Zion Crossroads. It is part of the Charlottesville metropolitan area in the Virginia Piedmont. It connects via 15 to US 250 which leads to Charlottesville via the western route and to Richmond via the east. Troy homes are less than 30 minutes from Charlottesville and less than 1 hour from Richmond, making it an ideal commuter community and a launching pad for weekend traveling.

Despite the classical-sounding name, Troy’s name is rooted in its history as an important junction in the Virginia railroad commercial system. The town’s namesake is “Captain” T.O. Troy, president of the Virginia Air Line Railway, a short-line railroad that operated from 1908 to 1975 and served to transport cargo that was too wide to fit through the tunnels that crossed the Blue Ridge Mountains between Charlottesville and Waynesboro. In its heyday, VAL served as an important link for providing coal power to the Washington D.C. area.

Residents of present-day Troy enjoy some of the most scenic real estate anywhere in Virginia. Hot-air balloon rides over the area are a staple activity for Troy residents and out-of-town visitors, and residents have quick and easy access to a variety of outdoor recreational activities, including Spring Creek Golf Club located just north of the town on US 15.
