Montgomery: Celebrating Texas History With Modern Convenience
Despite being one of the oldest cities in the state of Texas, Montgomery offers a perfect blend of historical nostalgia and updated amenities. Known for their southern hospitality, Montgomery residents take pride in their unique history and are eager to show visitors everything their small town has to offer.
Montgomery was home to Charles B. Stewart, who submitted the drawing for the Lone Star flag that Texas flies today. For this reason, the town is known as the "Birthplace of the Texas Flag." But Montgomery's rich history doesn't stop there. The town was chartered in 1837 but existed as the Lake Creek Settlement before that. History buffs will find a treasure trove of opportunities to learn more about events that made Montgomery the charming town it is today. Join a walking tour to see all the historic buildings or schedule some time to visit the N.H. Davis Pioneer Complex and Museum. You can also contact the Montgomery Historical Society to see what special events they have planned to showcase different elements of the area's history.
Our independent resident car buffs at might enjoy visiting the Old Iron Works to see a collections of old cars that have been restored and independent living residents with family visiting should plan a day at Longview Greens Mini Golf. Montgomery is home to a variety of boutiques and antique shops for anyone in need of a little retail therapy and the town offers a variety of local eateries to match every taste and budget. The historic downtown area regularly hosts events to encourage socializing, such as the Lone Star Flag Celebration, the Montgomery Fall Festival, and the City of Montgomery Christmas Parade.
For those who like to keep an active, outdoors lifestyle, Montgomery has beautiful spaces available to get out into the fresh air. Take a stroll through Fernland Historical Park to see preserved houses and cabins from the area, some of them from before the civil war. Memory Park offers a beautiful space to soak in the sun surrounded by local birds and colorful flowers as visitors reflect on those immortalized in park features such as paving stones and benches. Large grassy areas perfect for picnics can be found at Homecoming Park and Cedar Brake Park. With Montgomery's close proximity to Lake Conroe, residents who prefer water activities are just 15 minutes away. Boating, swimming, and fishing are all available in designated areas and golfers have the option of joining one of the private courses along the shoreline.
Montgomery is not known to experience snowfall so assisted living residents can expect an easier time getting around in the winter. Summer highs average around 93 degrees making the area comfortably warm most of the time. Winters rarely hit freezing temperatures, giving the holidays a seasonal chill without the icy roads or sidewalks. Rainfall beats the national average, giving the community enough moisture to sustain the trees growing throughout the downtown area.
We offer in-house comprehensive medical care for all our occupants, whether they require some skilled nursing or full memory support. Sometimes, however, our independent living and assisted living residents find themselves in need of more specialized care. Fortunately, Montgomery is home to several medical facilities throughout the town.
Urgent medical care can be handled by the Emergency Room at St. Luke's Health, a stand-alone facility that is dedicated to providing emergency services and equipped to handle care for stroke patients. Although this emergency department is not attached to a full hospital, patients have the same access to specialists and can be easily transferred to a full St. Luke's Hospital if needed. Lake Area Imaging and Diagnostics is also located within the same complex, providing additional resources for the emergency department. There is even a mammography facility that offers mammograms and bone density scans. Montgomery Family Medicine and the Houston Methodist Primary Care Group are excellent places to seek follow up care after a medical emergency or when more established care is needed that is beyond our scope.
