The people of Montgomery recently celebrated the 125th anniversary of the borough.
What did they celebrate?
For starters, they celebrated community. The borough has always been a closeknit community of people who appreciate where they live.
They celebrated work ethic. The borough has always been a home for people who view themselves as part of the working core of our region.
They celebrated resiliency. The borough has seen its share of economic ebb and flow over a century and a quarter but has always forged on, the better for the adversity it has seen.
Founded by a wealthy farmer and landowner - Robert Montgomery - the borough has been home to railroads and small businesses and factories and families for 125 years.
The borough has survived floods and economic misfortune and remains today one of the region's solid components of community and commerce.
It has survived on adaptability and, hopefully, will thrive on that very characteristic for another 125 years.
