Announcing the Lilly Stone Circle


Montgomery History is pleased to announce the launch of the Lilly Stone Circle, a special group representing Montgomery History’s most active and committed supporters.


In 1944, Lilly Stone convened a group of her friends, colleagues, and admirers – 24 people who shared her love and appreciation for the history of Montgomery County – and established Montgomery Historical Society.


Lilly led an extraordinary life and was proof that an individual, driven by passion and guided by an optimistic vision, could leave a lasting mark. As the founder and first president of the Society, Lilly personified the qualities that continue to in spire us today: strength, intelligence, generosity, and grit.


The Lilly Stone Circle recognizes those who follow in her footsteps. Donors to Montgomery History who invest $1,000 or more each year, include the organization in their estate plans, or provide over 500 hours of volunteer service annually will receive: 


  • Invitations to exclusive Lilly Stone Circle events;
  • Special recognition in our quarterly History Matters newsletter and other publications;
  • Periodic insider updates from the Executive Director; and
  • Satisfaction knowing that Lilly’s legacy is being passed forward to future generations.


We invite you to join the Lilly Stone Circle today. For more information, please contact Development Director Katharine Stewart at 301-340-2825 or by email.
