Montgomery County Historical Society Ceremony set for Sunday


August 6th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

An official with USDA Rural Development will be on-hand Sunday afternoon in Red Oak, for the dedication of new parking lot at the Montgomery County Historic Center. Hollie Askey will be in attendance for the 1-p.m. ceremony. The Montgomery County History Center received a $70,000 grant from the USDA to assist with the parking lot project.

The Montgomery County Historical Society was organized in 1945, to help preserve and share the area’s history. It continued to grow over the years, and in 2006, moved into a new 14,000 square foot building

The parking lot project marks the conclusion of the final beautification project at the center.
