New engraved pavers install in front of the Montgomery Village Hall

There are almost 200 engraved pavers in front of the Montgomery Village Hall previously. Twenty new engraved pavers have been added to the walkway in order to commemorate the residents and businesses of the Village. These twenty news pavers are added to honor the Board members of the Village who served during the past 30 years.

The residents of the Village will recognize the names of the Board members for a long time via these pavers. Some of the famous personalities of Montgomery include Gary Pregel and Nan Cobb. Pregel served as the trustee of the Village between 1989 and 1993. He also served as the president of the Village in the 1993-1997 period. Cobb served as the clerk of the village for 18 years from 1980 to 1998.

Matt Brolley, the president of the Village, said, “Reading the paver inscriptions on the path is kind of like a walk through the past.” The engraved pavers have the names of famous teachers, businessmen, friends, and neighbors. Brolley added that it was one of the happiest things for them to remember the names of the men and women for a long time who served the village.

Brolley added, “We hope people will stop by during Montgomery Fest to read the paver inscriptions and to visit Settlers Cottage.” The Montgomery Fest will be from Friday to Sunday. The sale of the pavers is sponsored by the Historic Preservation Commission of Montgomery. It is an effort of the commission to raise the funds for the restoration of the Settlers Cottage and other historic preservation projects.

The families and businesses of Montgomery can purchase a brick for leaving their permanent mark on Montgomery. The purchased brick would include the name of the business, family, or any loved one. A four-by-seven-inches brick can be purchased in $100 while seven-by-eight inches brick can be purchased in $200. The two types of bricks include the facility of different lines of engraving. The smaller brick holds up to three lines of engraving while the larger one holds up to four lines.
