About Us

Montgomery History collects, preserves, interprets, and shares the histories of all of Montgomery County’s residents. To that end, we operate the c. 1815 Beall-Dawson House as a historic house museum, the Stonestreet Museum of 19th Century Medicine, and the Jane C. Sween Research Library. We also manage the County’s official government archives and maintain a 10,000-item collection of historic artifacts dating from prehistory to the present. We host and participate in numerous public events every year including our annual Montgomery County History Conference. With a focus on outreach and inclusivity, our new “pop-up” exhibits, such as a hands-on one featuring historic typewriters, have proven to be exceedingly popular, as has our well-known Speakers Bureau. Montgomery History is also home to the Center for Suburban Studies, which explores the county’s more recent past.
