Heritage Days at Montgomery History is just one week away! Join us on Saturday, June 23 as we celebrate the 1950s in Montgomery County with an opportunity to share your oral histories, play vintage lawn games like the potato "gunny" sack race, enjoy the last few weeks of our "BOOM" exhibit, and much more fun for all ages!
In 2019, Montgomery History will celebrate its 75th anniversary. To commemorate this important milestone, we plan to record oral histories of a cross-section of people who lived in Montgomery County 75 years ago.
Our goal for this oral history project is to raise $5,000. If you choose to donate online, your gift will be matched dollar-for dollar, effectively doubling the impact of your donation.
Your gift of any size will make an enormous difference. Won’t you contribute toward keeping these memories alive?
