Montgomery County was created on September 10, 1784 from part of Philadelphia County. Norristown, the county seat, was named for Isaac Norris, who owned land there.
The vistas at Valley Forge Historical Park are especially breathtaking, both in fall foliage and later in the season as snow turns rolling hillsides into the perfect place to go sledding or cross-country skiing. It was here that General Washington forged his Continental Army into a fighting force, during the difficult winter encampment of 1777-78.
America's past echoes through countless historic sites and homes in the Montgomery County area which trace the nations's growth. They range in size and grandeur from a 17th century log cabin to an 18th century governor's mansion. Whether you're planning a full vacation or a weekend jaunt, this is the perfect place to follow the trail of history.
