Historic Montgomery, Texas
Montgomery is one of the oldest cities in Texas. Prior to being chartered in 1837, it had been known as the Lake Creek Settlement or Montgomery Settlement to some. In Montgomery's early days, it was the trade center for a large farming area where stagecoach and telegraph lines crossed. The first school was established in 1839 and in 1848 the City of Montgomery was incorporated. A building boom occurred in the 1850s and some of the homes built at that time remain today. The genesis of its nickname "Birthplace of the Texas Flag" came from resident Charles B. Stewart who provided the drawing of the Lone Star flag, which was officially adopted in 1839 by the Republic of Texas and has flown over Texas ever since.
