Since 2007, the Montgomery County History Conference has been a venue for people of all ages and backgrounds—civic leaders, students, museum professionals and volunteers, history buffs, genealogists, and the general public—to explore and celebrate the many facets of our past that shape our community to this day. Hosted annually by Montgomery History, this day-long gathering includes workshops, presentations, and panel discussions covering a wide range of topics within the realm of local history.
This year’s conference promises to be another can’t-miss event with something for everyone. A personal story of a Montgomery County man’s service in World War I will start the day, followed by breakout sessions featuring such varied topics as the architectural history of the Jewish community, the unique Warren Historic Site, Latino immigration, archaeological work at Oakley Cabin, the pivotal election of 1962, and a retrospective of historic preservation efforts. “History Gems” will enable you to see distinctive artifacts from five local museums, while “History Tools” will provide you with the know-how to save a local burial site. The final session will be a special treat for Baby Boomers and music lovers of all ages with documentary clips and a panel discussion of the legendary radio station, WHFS 102.3 FM.
See the History Conference brochure for a complete Schedule of Events for the day, and a list of all session topics.
We hope you will join us for the 11th Annual Montgomery County History Conference!
