Montgomery locals

By Staff | Mar 27, 2012

On Tuesday, March 20, the Montgomery Area Historical Society presented a brief history of the Borough to commemorate its 125th anniversary, which, according to official documents recently discovered, was March 21. Doug Snyder, President of the Society, spoke about Montgomery’s past in the Montgomery Borough Building to a diverse and intrigued crowd. He detailed the post offices of the community through the years; Black Hole, Clinton Mills, and Montgomery Station, before the present-day Montgomery. He also noted the rich railroad history of the Borough, as Robert Montgomery, the town’s namesake, donated land for the railroad through the area. After the presentation, cake was served, with the town’s motto, “Growing Towards Tomorrow”, piped across it. The Historical Society is planning many more events this year for the 125th anniversary, culminating in their participation in a three day celebration event that a special committee is planning for August. Look for an Alvira History presentation coming in April from the Historical Society.
