I like about Troup Tx that is a small community. Almost everyone knows each other. I receny graduated from the local High School which is small a 2A school. All the teachers are great and a great help to all the students who will like to be success in life.I would love if the Town will have more things for the kids to do in the city like a local swimming pool, community building for kids to do .I believe this will keep the kids active and not in so much trouble.

Troup is an incredibly small town with not a whole lot to see. However, the people are very friendly and the housing is fairly inexpensive.
People that live in Troup was probably raised here from birth. Everyone mostly knows everyone, but there are some people that goes by nicknames and everyone in town knows it. There are great people in the community. There is a food bank that donates food the the poor, and the local library raises money as way for the community.
