Built in 1874, the Market Square Building's third floor had housed a large meeting room under a variety of names including Granger Hall, the Odd Fellow's Hall and the Golden Dragon's Club. After World War II the room was no longer used and fell into disrepair.
The original proscenium of the room's stage was saved and now frames the main entrance to the room. The ceiling medallions have become centerpieces framing five chandeliers which were originally hung in 1928 in the Mayflower Theater across the street. In 1996, building owner Parker Behm donated the room to Troy Main Street, a non-profit organization dedicated to the revitalization of downtown Troy.
The Market Square Community Room is located on the third floor of the Market Square Building, 405 SW Public Square at the intersection of State Routes 41 (Main Street) and 55 (Market Street) in downtown Troy. It is easily accessed from I-75 by taking either exit 73 (State Rte. 55) or exit 74 (State Rte. 41) and traveling east to the Public Square.
