Troy landmark being demolished

Demolition begins in downtown Troy

TROY, Ohio (WDTN) — A piece of Troy’s history is being demolished.

Crews are working to tear down the former Hobart Brothers manufacturing building at the corner of Main and Elm streets.

According to our partners at the Troy Daily News, the building is no longer structurally sound. Hobart Brothers moved their manufacturing operation to a new facility in August of 2012 after being hit with dozens of safety violations and a $174,000 penalty by OSHA earlier that year.

The company makes wiring and power equipment for airplanes.

No word yet on what will replace the Main Street building when demolition is complete. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
