Today’s Montgomery County Courthouse standing in the center of downtown Conroe, Texas, memorializes the remarkable history of one of the oldest counties in the State of Texas. Montgomery County came into existence in 1837 as the third county of the infant Republic of Texas, with the old town of Montgomery, Texas, serving as the first county seat. Over the next 100 years, the official seat of county government has been served by three separate courthouses in the town of Montgomery, followed by a temporary courthouse and two permanent courthouses in the city of Conroe.
