Scooter Ride to Pike County in Alabama,_Alabama

Pike County was created on 1821 Dec. 17. The county boundaries changed several times before being set at their current locations in 1866. The county was named for Gen. Zebulon Pike (New Jersey), a soldier in the War of 1812. The first county seat was established at Louisville, later moved to Monticello and finally located in Troy in 1839. Pike County is located in the southeastern section of the state, in the coastal plain or "Wiregrass" area. It encompasses 672 square miles. A teachers' training college, Troy Normal School, was established in Troy in 1887. Today it exists as Troy University. Other towns located in the county include Brundidge, Spring Hill and Henderson.

Here is a picture of an old filling station located just outside of Troy. I loved the old gas pump so had to stop and take the photo. It is located on Hwy 29/10 west.   If this picture doesn't meet the criteria of identifiable landmarks, then here is a picture of us at Ward's Yamaha-Honda-Suzuki-Kawasaki-Polaris in Troy.
