The Montgomery County Historical Society's artifact collections consist of over 10,000 objects, encompassing the history of our county from the pre-contact era to the present day. Our collections include textiles, household goods, toys and recreational items, weapons, agricultural and industrial tools, furniture and decorative arts, and many other items, all of which help to tell the story of everyday life in Montgomery County. We also have a large collection of 19th and early 20th century medical tools and books related to the Stonestreet Museum of 19th Century Medicine.

Read the MCHS blog, "A Fine Collection"
Joanna Church's (Director of Collections) weekly blog posts feature a different artifact from the MCHS collections every week. Like most museums, the Society has many, many more objects than can be displayed at any one time, and the blog provides an outlet for presenting some of these pieces that have seldom, if ever, gone on exhibit. Many artifacts are already on view, and new posts go up every Wednesday. Bookmark the page to get your weekly artifact fix!
