Connecting Communities: Troup
The city of Troup was highlighted during Commissioners Court on Tuesday, February 6, as part of the Connecting Communities initiative.

Troup Mayor Joe Carlyle is proud of the city he grew up in and still calls his home.

Carlyle gave a presentation about Troup during Smith County Commissioners Court on Tuesday, February 6, as part of the county’s Connecting Communities initiative.

In 1872, a 45-mile rail line running from Palestine to Troup was completed. At one point, the city was running 6,000 to 8,000 bales of cotton through the steam-powered locomotive. The cotton industry in Troup faded and was replaced by peaches, bell peppers and tomatoes, Carlyle said.

There was also eight passenger trains running north, and eight passenger trains running south from Troup per day at one time, he said.

“We were a powerhouse in the day because we had the rail,” Carlyle said.
