Montgomery is living history. As one of the oldest towns in Texas, it has the unique distinction of being the birthplace of the official Texas state flag. When it comes to experiencing Texas history, there’s nothing like strolling through the 19th-century historic district located downtown. While there, you might as well spend some time at Fernland Historical Park. The park is home to the oldest remaining cabins and log homes in the state. These structures are authentic representations of early Texas life and architecture. This is a fun, educational adventure for adults and children. There are nearly 7,000 students in the Montgomery Independent School District who can not only read about this rich history, but can also experience it hands-on.
There is no shortage of restaurants, fine retail shops and local attractions for you to enjoy. When it comes to fun-packed annual events, Montgomery has you covered. In July, the Freedom Fest takes place with a barbecue cook-off, craft market, kids’ zone and parade. You can discover the best in Texas food, beer, wine and music during September’s Wine and Music Fest. When October rolls around, residents celebrate at the Texian Heritage Festival, where they watch Civil War era re-enactments, eat plenty of food and shop with vendors. Of course, no historic town like this one would be complete without an Antique Festival where you can find and buy fabulous treasures. Rounding out the year is Christmas in Montgomery. This spectacular, jam-packed event includes breakfast with Santa, a cookie walk featuring sumptuous holiday cookies by the pound, and a candlelight home tour. Afterward you’ll want to grab a blanket and chair, because a spirited Christmas parade and live musical entertainment caps off the evening.
