The county of Montgomery, located east of the Texas state, was established in 1837 and was named after the town of Montgomery, its largest settlement. It has been economically dependent on its farming and ranching industries; greenhouse crops, horses, cattle, goats, and poultry were its major products. Thus, with this county’s profuse forest and lakes, such as the W. Goodrich Jones State Forest, Sam Houston National Forest, Lake Woodlands, and Lake Conroe, hiking, boating, and fishing can all be certainly enjoyed. On top of that, its county seat also features annual celebrations like the county fair and the Cajun Catfish Festival every October, where shopping and leisure opportunities are limitless. Furthermore, this county offers a variety of food selection from steaks, seafood, barbecues, and other Mexican and Italian specialties.
