Known as the "Birthplace of the Texas flag," the city was established in 1837 as the second of Stephen F. Austin's colonies. Dr. Charles Bellinger Stewart, a town resident from 1838-85, designed the first Republic of Texas flag and official seal. In 1997, then-Gov. George W. Bush signed a resolution officially proclaiming Montgomery County as the Birthplace of the Lone Star Flag.
Many historic homes and buildings are located throughout the city. Find a self-guided City Tour at the N.H. Davis Museum Complex or area businesses.
Events include Christmas in Historic Montgomery in December, Historic Montgomery Food and Wine Trail in September, Farmer's Market (weather permitting) January-December, Lonestar First Saturday, and Antique Festival and Appraisal Day the first weekend in May.
