Doniphan County
US-36, Doniphan County
Roadside turnout, 1 mile east of Troy

      Two miles west is Troy, named for the famous city of Greek antiquity. Following the organization of Doniphan County in 1855 Troy was named the county seat and business began there in 1856. Initially it played a secondary role to such Missouri River towns as Elwood, Iowa Point and White Cloud, but the coming of the railroad in 1869 made it more important than those communities which depended on the river for their economic life.
