Montgomery County

Montgomery County came into being as territory was taken from Washington County in 1793. With the Revolutionary War still fresh in their minds, founders named this county for General Richard Montgomery who was mortally wounded at the siege of Quebec. Mt. Vernon, the county seat, is named for George Washington's home on the Potomac River.
