The Montgomery County Historical Society was founded in 1944, and has been collecting artifacts, books, photographs and archival materials ever since. The artifact collections include an incredibly wide variety of objects representing 300-some years of Montgomery County life, including kitchen and household items, agricultural and industrial tools, toys, textiles and clothing, weaponry, art, furniture, glass and ceramics, medical instruments… yeah, there’s a lot. So much, in fact, that (like most museums) we have far more in storage than is on exhibit at any given time. That’s part of what this blog is for: to highlight some of those artifacts that have not often (or ever) gotten their time in the metaphorical sun.
