North Carolina-Montgomery County-July 30


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-July 30

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

Montgomery was carved out of Anson County in 1779. The county gets its name from an American Revolutionary Major General named Richard Montgomery. He was killed in the Battle of Quebec. Montgomery was born in Ireland and follows a trend that many North Carolina counties have a namesake that was not from the area or state.

A rural and wooded region, Montgomery County’s woodland attracts hunters, fishermen, and other outdoor enthusiasts.  It is also home to much of the Uwharrie National Forest—approximately 50,000 acres.


Also, many rivers, lakes, and mountains are within the region. Several parts of the Yadkin-Pee Dee River flow through the county as well as Badin Lake, a body of water dammed from the river.

Montgomery County is home to several historical and artistic sites. A 600-year old Indian mound known as the Town Creek Indian Mound was the first North Carolina State Historic Site. The mound was once a place where various Indian tribes of the Pee Dee region gathered, hosted feasts, and discussed tribal matters.
