Communities in the Montgomery County Area

   
  Conroe / Lake Conroe, Texas
   
 

Isaac Conroe was born in New Jersey in 1835, when the Texas Revolution was in its infancy. In 1881, Montgomery County was 44 years old when the City of Conroe was born. Army Captain Isaac Conroe became a lumberman and was constructing a 2-˝ mile wooden tram to link his lumber mill with the north-south International and Great Northern Rail road. The new rail stop was named "Conroe's Switch". By 1889 this crossroads community became the county seat and Mr. Conroe became its first postmaster.

Today Conroe is one of the fastest growing areas in the state and offers its residents and visitors a wealth of history, affordable housing, and family oriented communities and outstanding entertainment year round. More than one million people a year visit the county to take advantage of the Sam Houston National Forest, 22,000-acre Lake Conroe and other fine amenities. Our medical center can provide you with the best medical care from Childbirth to heart surgery. Our business climate is growing as small business owners and industry are trying to relocate here.

  Montgomery, Texas
   
 

Prior to 1837, Montgomery was a trading post located a mile north of the present site. Owen and Margaret Montgomery Shannon, colonists with Stephen F. Austin, had settled on their grant of land and traded with the Indians.

In its early days, Montgomery was the trade center for a large farming area, where stagecoach, railroad and telegraph lines crossed.

The Lone Star Flag of Texas was a product of the vision of Dr. Charles Bellinger Stewart, a resident of the city of Montgomery. Serving as the first Secretary of State for the Republic of Texas, he was the first to sign the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836.

President Mirabeau B. Lamar appointed a committee to create an official flag for the Republic and Dr. Stewart was asked to create a draft for a flag. The sketch was on vellum featuring three rectangles of equal size, one vertical and the other two horizontal. In the vertical he placed a lone star. The red, white and blue of the Lone Star Flag of Texas stand for bravery, purity and loyalty.

The committee approved this design and the design for the state seal, which Stewart had also designed. President Mirabeau B. Lamar approved both on January 25, 1839.

One Hundred and Sixty Four years later, growing faster than the mind can imagine, yet still small in size, the city of Montgomery offers residents and visitors alike a vast number of exciting and enjoyable experiences. From the Antique shops of down town Montgomery, the unspoiled beauty of the Sam Houston National Forest, a true golfers paradise with over 228 holes in Montgomery County, to Lake Conroe covering 22,000 acres, (noted as “Houston's Playground”), there is something here for everyone.

Whether looking for your first home or looking for the place to retire, Montgomery will be that exciting place to call your home.
