Author Robert L. Williams is Montgomery Town Historian, chairman of Delaware Water Gap's Cultural and Historical Resources Committee, and founder of the Walpack Historical Society in Sussex County, New Jersey. His extensive research into Montgomery's history is enhanced by his interest in architecture and the need to preserve endangered historic buildings. Montgomery, New York is a tribute to both the rich heritage of a fascinating town and the dedicated people who have made it what it is today. It is hoped that this collection will inspire its readers to protect and preserve the fragile and finite historical resources that survive.
