Research rare and uncommon flora and fauna

Troy Arboretun and Nature Preserve aims to research rare and uncommon flora and fauna of Southeast Alabama

The mission of the Troy University Arboretum is to acquire representative species of the flora of Southeast Alabama and to display them in situations that mimic the natural conditions under which the species would occur. In particular, the Arboretum is interested in research on rare and uncommon species and communities. The Arboretum works to preserve representative members, communities and habitats of the Wiregrass region of Southeast Alabama on its 75-acre's adjacent to Troy University's main campus and on its 18 acre Pocosin Nature Preserve located approximately 6 miles due east of the main campus.

A classical-revival style post office

Johnson Center for the Arts

The Johnson Center for the Arts is housed in one of Troy, Alabama's historic treasures, a classical-revival style post office, circa 1910, located just off the square in downtown Troy. The government facility remained in service until 1980, but it sat empty until 2000. That same year, the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center Board of Directors was formed. Fearing the structure's impending demolition, the Board purchased the handsome structure in order to preserve it and create the only cultural arts center in Pike County.

Montgomery, Alabama is only 52 miles

Montgomery, capital of the state of Alabama, U.S., and seat (1822) of Montgomery county, located in the central part of the state. The city lies near the point where the Alabama River is formed by the confluence of the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers. It was originally the site of Native American villages and was visited by Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto in 1540. About 1717 the French built Fort Toulouse on the river a short distance north of the present site of Montgomery. The city was founded and chartered in 1819 with the consolidation of two settlements and named for General Richard Montgomery, who had been killed during the American Revolution. It was made the state capital in 1846. In February 1861, just before the start of the American Civil War, Montgomery became the first capital of the Confederacy, though the capital was moved to Richmond, Virginia, later that year. Montgomery was captured by Union troops in 1865.
