With a rich and varied history spanning almost three hundred years, Montgomery County suffered during the Revolutionary War, prospered with the Erie Canal and the railroad, and changed in the age of urban renewal. Located in the heart of the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York, the county experienced the arrival of Dutch and Palatine German settlers, the passage of travelers heading west through the Noses, the pre-suffragist sojourn of Susan B. Anthony, and the swift success of the carpet industry. All of this is compellingly retold in Montgomery County, a broad look at the people, industry, culture, and architecture that make up the county's history.
