More About Around Montgomery Borough by Joan Wheal Blank
 
 
 
Overview
Although the borough of Montgomery and its surrounding townships may epitomize the phrase small town, there is nothing small about the character of its residents. During the 1940s, while many families in the Montgomery area endured losses of property and faith, their neighbors reached out in support. The following decade saw the growth of local businesses and continued community involvement, as evidenced by the borough s diamond jubilee celebration in 1962. After the area was hit by a devastating flood in 1972, a revitalization of the borough soon commenced to prepare for a yearlong celebration of the American bicentennial in 1976. Disaster struck again with a killer tornado in 1985, but once again the spirit of this community revived to host its 100th anniversary celebration in 1987."
