The Untold Stories program works with communities throughout the county to share diverse stories in parks, along trails, and online.
The program is in collaboration with Montgomery Planning’s Historic Preservation Office. M-NCPPC Montgomery Park and Planning is installing markers throughout the county in a shared effort to bring greater recognition to people, places, and events with significant histories that have been undervalued in the past.
Meet people who have spoken up for their beliefs, fought for change, and served their communities. Explore stories of resilience and strong community bonds amid discrimination.
