Montgomery was established in 1887 so we do have a proud history and a rich past. It is an amazing past for sure. Our community is proud for many good reasons.
From President George Washington (whose body guard is buried right here in Montgomery), to President Abraham Lincoln, you can understand the pride we feel from our past.
“Growing Toward Tomorrow” is our slogan and is so true. As you surf our web site the pride will hit you. On that note, all I have to say is Thank You for stopping by and please visit often. If you ever get to visit our great town, I’d be happy to meet you.
Following are some photos of our great town. We hope you get a chance to stop by sometime and visit in person.
