Montgomery County

Montgomery County is a county located in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, in the United States. As of 2000, the population was 750,097. A 2005 U.S. Census estimate placed the population at 795,618, making it the third most populous county in Pennsylvania (after Philadelphia and Allegheny counties) and the 69th most populous county in the United States. The county seat is Norristown.

The county was created on September 10, 1784, out of land originally part of Philadelphia County. It is believed to have been either named in honor of Richard Montgomery, an American Revolutionary War general killed in 1775 while attempting to capture Quebec City, Canada, or for the Welsh county of Montgomeryshire (which was named after one of William the Conqueror’s main counselors, Roger de Montgomerie), as it was part of the Welsh Tract — an area of Pennsylvania settled by Quakers from Wales. Early histories of the county indicate the origin of the county’s name as uncertain.

For centuries, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania has been making history. From the dramatic re-shaping of Washington’s Army at Valley Forge to the lesser known engagement of Lafayette at Barren Hill, this region played an important role in the nation’s early history. Originally, part of Philadelphia County, this fertile land along the Schuylkill River became its own county in 1784.

Booming industry and manufacturing, rich farm fields, advanced transportation, artistic endeavors and unique religous beliefs, contributed to the greatness of the county. However, no matter what its ideals or enterprises, it is the people of Montgomery County that remain her greatest assest. Birthplace of General Winfield S. Hancock, General John F. Hartranft and General Henry “Hap” Arnold, the county has sent tens of thousands of its sons and daughters to wars near and far. Abolitionists like Lucretia Mott, inventors like David Rittenhouse and Thaddeus Lowe and artists like Thomas Hovenden have all called Montgomery County home.

Pennsylvania law provides for four types of incorporated municipalities:  cities, boroughs, townships, and, rarer cases, towns.  Below are listed the cities, boroughs and townships located in Montgomery County:
