Welcome!

Welcome to the new blog of the Historical Society of Montgomery County.  Each week, we’ll explore a different item in our collection.  We’ll also highlight events at the Society headquarters and at historic Montgomery Cemetery.

Montgomery County was founded in 1784 out of part of Philadelphia County.  Last year, the Historical Society obtained a hand drawn map of the proposed county with a description of the site chosen for the county seat (later known as Norristown).Image
