The Montgomery County Story


Published biannually by Montgomery History, The Montgomery County Story is a journal focusing on the history of the people, places, events, and organizations in Montgomery County, Maryland.

All Montgomery County Story issues are now fully scanned and available to view or download in our digital repository: The Montgomery County Story, 1957-present. The entire collection of issues is keyword-searchable, or browse by title, author, or subject.

Current issues are available in physical format only until the publication of the following issue, at which point they will become available online through the digital repository.
The newest issue, published December 2020, is “Aspin Hill Pet Cemetery: 100 Years of Pets, People, and the Stories Behind the Stones.” Author Julianne Mangin explores a place that is not just where local pets are laid to rest, but also one that reflects the life and times of the region and details this incredible monument to the bond shared between humans and their animals.
