Troy (Doniphan County)
Listed in National Register 2002-07-03

Architect: unknown
Category: commercial district

In 1854 the Kansas and Nebraska Act opened Doniphan County and the Kansas Territory to settlers. Commissioners Thomas J. B. Cramer and A. Payne chose the site of Troy for the Doniphan County seat on October 12, 1855, and it was named in honor of Troy of Ancient Greece. The town was planned in a typical midwestern grid, dedicating the public square as the node for the city and county. Nineteen contributing sites illustrate a variety of architectural styles from 1870-1920 that have been well preserved. This historic district was nominated for its association with community planning and development as a highly intact example of a turn-of-the century downtown.

Troy (Doniphan County)
Listed in National Register 1990-01-04

Architect: unknown
Category: road-related

The Doniphan County Waddell Truss Bridge was constructed around 1900. It spans 36 feet long, 20 feet wide, and the deck of the bridge rises 14 feet above the stream bed. The bridge is constructed of either wrought iron or steel. This structure is significant because it is the last remaining example of the Waddell "A" Truss design in Kansas, and it has retained a great degree of its integrity. The development of the Waddell "A" Truss in the late 19th and early 20th centuries allowed for spans of up to 75 feet compared to the King Post utilized before it, which could only span short distances. The bridge was nominated for its engineering significance. The bridge was relocated in October 2015 from Monument Rd in the SW4, NE4, SW4 S3-T5S-R21E (39.64383,-95.05384). The NPS approved the relocation on June 27, 2016.
