South Troy is an unincorporated community in Zumbro Township, Wabasha County, Minnesota, United States. It is located on U.S. Highway 63 about 13 miles north of Rochester. Nearby places include Hammond, Zumbro Falls, Mazeppa, Potsdam, and Oronoco. Wabasha County Roads 7 and 11 are nearby.

South Troy had a post office from 1858 to 1903. Nearby Zumbro Falls was originally named Troy in the 1850s. The area south of Zumbro Falls to the Wabasha–Olmsted County line along U.S. 63 was named South Troy. The name of Troy was changed to Zumbro Falls after 1860 because there was already a community named Troy in southeast Minnesota at Winona County.
