What it's Like to Live in Montgomery, Texas: 

One of the oldest towns in Texas, Montgomery, part of the greater Houston area, is a homey town located west of Conroe and Northwest of Houston. With just 988 people, it has a small-town feel but is still very accessible to all the big city offers. Gorgeous Texas countryside, rolling hills, and farmland frame a historic downtown, suburban neighborhoods with a great cost of living, and excellent schools in Conroe and the Woodlands. 

Montgomery is also just 50 miles from Houston - job opportunities and education options abound as residents have easy access to Conroe, the Woodlands, Huntsville, and other suburban communities of greater Houston. Montgomery is also close to Sam Houston National Forest and Lake Conroe, where you can go hiking, boating, fishing, camping. 

Some of Texas’ most scenic and historic areas - Huntsville, the birthplace of General Sam Houston, and the birthplace of the Texas flag - are in Montgomery County. It’s a great place to live and raise a family, and it’s an affordable reprieve from the big city for professionals and students.
