Our goal at The Heritage Museum of Montgomery County is educating the public about Montgomery County's rich history! The Heritage Museum of Montgomery County, was founded in 1985, and features exhibits showcasing the county's roots, from the lumber and oil industries to the everyday lives of Montgomery County residents. The Museum is housed in the historic Grogan/Cochran home, built in 1924.
The Museum is composed of three permanent galleries including Glimpses of Montgomery County, featuring a time line chronicling displaying the area's entire history, from prehistoric times to the building of Lake Conroe and The Woodlands in the late 1970's. The second gallery, Towns, People & Events, honors those who have impacted the county and distinguishes some of the first events for the area, such as the first county fair, the first telephone, etc. The third gallery is a Hands-On Children's Room. Here children can explore a log cabin and a turn of the century general store.
The Museum also offers a research room, oral histories of county residents, traveling exhibitions, a gift shop and several outdoor exhibits depicting the history of Montgomery County. Special events include a summer program for area children focusing on the cultures and heritage of the County. Pioneer Camp offers hands-on activities include churning butter, candle dipping, washing on rub boards, pioneer games, and log sawing.
