Montgomery is located at the junction of Texas 105 and FM 149, near the southwestern edge of Sam Houston National Forest in western Montgomery County. The center of town is 15 miles west of Conroe and 50 miles northwest of Houston.
As one of the oldest towns in Texas, Montgomery began as a trading post in 1826 and was charted in 1837. Montgomery was the first county seat of Montgomery County and was the third county formed under the Republic of Texas.
It is also recognized as the birthplace of the Texas Lone Star Flag. And if you are new to Texas, you will soon find out how proud we are of our flag!
We wear it on our clothes, around our neck, it’s on our BBQ utensils, our kitchen towels, our bedspreads, our shower curtains, our vehicles, our jackets, our pants, our shirts and heck, even our underwear. We are proud of that flag… so THANK YOU MONTGOMERY, TEXAS.
If you are looking for a great school with a very active sports department, you have found it in Montgomery. The Montgomery Bears are the pride of the community.

Due to growth and demand in the area, a second high school has broken ground and is slated to be completed by 2018 and will be known as Lake Creek High School. It will house an additional 1600 students. Superintendent Beau Rees said. “A second high school is a big step in terms of the growth of the community and being able to provide a quality education to our kids.”
