Troy Historic Village Scarecrowtopia
The Troy Historic Village is open to the public year round. In addition to offering tours, the Troy Historic Village has many special events tailored to children and families of all ages. Currently the seasonal exhibit is Scarecrowtopia. You will find several scarecrows around the village. The village features a one room school, town hall, historic home, log cabin, historic home, gazebo, general store, church, main building, wagon shop, as well as a parsonage.
Recently we attended Scarecrowtopia Trick or Treat. Each building inside the village had a special activity. The employees passed out candy with candy chutes. Our favorite activity was the obstacle course! The trick or treat features time entry, social distancing, touchless activities, together with a take home craft. We also really enjoyed the scavenger hunt. Make sure that you visit scarecrow row and check out all the unique scarecrows along the Livernois and Wattles fence. Guests are required to wear a mask. Hand sanitizer is available at each activity.
