History in the Parks

Travel back in time to learn how your family, friends, and neighbors may have lived. Imagine your surprise when you discover you haven’t traveled far from your backyard to your local park.

Due to COVID-19, Montgomery Parks’ historic sites are open with limited hours through the end of the season. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check the individual parks’ websites for outdoor programming updates.
