History & History Related Items

Montgomery history:

Montgomery began as a trading post about a mile north of its present site. Colonists, which included Stephen F. Austin and Owen and Margaret Montgomery Shannon, settled here on a land grant and did trading with the local indians. Lots were advertised for sale in 1837 for the newly formed town, which touted it as the new center for a new county. Montgomery was the county seat until only 1889 when it was moved to Conroe. The first school opened here in 1839. The city was incorporated in 1848. Many beautiful homes were built during the 1850's. Many are still used and occupied even today. By 1900 many business had come into town. The town prospered, but when the county seat was moved to Conroe, much business went with it. Today Montgomery has retained its small, hometown feel. It is a quiet place with a great deal of history. Home tours are held by the Montogmery Historical Society. The Society may be reached at P.O. Box 513, Montogomery TX 77356
The founding of Montgomery: 1837
