Troy Sale Barn Grower’s Market –
The Troy Sale Barn is a not for profit community project to enhance our community and provide a historic venue for a variety of events.
The Troy Sale Barn is a historic building located in Troy Pennsylvania. The building began it’s life as a cattle auction barn in the early 1920’s. Built by a consortium of local dairy farmers to sell breeding stock. At the time Bradford County was renown for their dairy cows.
People came from all over the northeast to purchase animals. The sale was held every Wednesday and the town was overflowing with buyers and people shopping. It was a major part of the local economy.
As the dairy industry began a downturn in the 1970’s and 80’s the Sale Barn became less viable to the point where it was going to be torn down. Then a few community minded people decide that it was very important that this precious history should be preserved and the work began as a not for profit community project. Many from the community have donated their time, money, materials, and equipment to get the job done.
We invite anyone to come see us and take a look. We might put a hammer in your hand but its not required. We are located at 50 Ballard St., behind the Chinese Restaurant on Rt 14 (Canton St.)
As of this writing we have opened the barn end to various community events including, educational events, performing arts, and weddings and receptions, just to name a few.
The next phase is to turn the area where the auctions were held into a theater. It will be an incredible venue for the performing arts and even weddings. Sorry, no cattle will be sold. The area beneath the auditorium that was where the sold calves were held will be used for displaying items of historical value and areas that local organisations can have displays.
Again, please come and see us.
The Pennsylvania Portion of US Route 6 is a scenic 403-mile drive through the beautiful state of Pennsylvania, beginning 20 miles west of Meadville and heading south to an Ohio border crossing. As it continues eastward towards Conneaut Lake on US 322, travelers enjoy spectacular vistas before connecting with US 19 in western Meadville for the journey north to Mill Village where a junction awaits at US 6N—the perfect place to end this amazing road trip!
US 6 sets off from Pennsylvania and strides along the New York-Pennsylvania border, running parallel to it for much of its journey. In Factoryville US 11 takes up a brief co-journey with US 6 until Scranton where they part ways—US 11 heading south out of town while US6 continues eastwardly. Eventually, at Milford reaches another partner in crime: making an alliance with 209 which leads them northeast towards Matamoras crossing over the Delaware River into Port Jervis, NY!
