Montgomery County Texas
Historical Timeline Vol. I & II

 by Larry Foerster


The two-volume updated second edition of my Montgomery County Texas Historical Timeline has now arrived from the printer and will be available for sale. This expands my first edition published in 2013 from 239 pages to 500 pages in two volumes.

Cover photos taken by professional photographer, David Clements, are of “The Texian” statue, created by noted local sculptor Craig Campobella. The statue is the centerpiece of the Lone Star Monument and Historic Flag Park in Conroe.

This is a Montgomery County Historical Commission project with the support of County Judge Mark Keough and County Commissioners Robert Walker, Charlie Riley, James Noack, and Matt Gray. Volumes will soon be available at all County libraries.

Volume I covers the years 1500 through 1918. Volume II covers the years 1919 through 2021. Each softbound volume is full of historic photos, maps, and other historic items that make reading our County’s history more interesting.


Softbound Volumes I and II retail for $35 each. All proceeds are used to promote and preserve the
history of Montgomery County.


Checks can be made payable to the Montgomery County Historical Commission.
