Why Invisible Montgomery?

Historian James Loewen in 2016 wrote, “When researching a town or county, if it is overwhelmingly monoracial, decade after decade, ask why.”

Loewen was writing about spaces and the people filling them. His observation about spaces and places can be extended to how communities produce history, historic preservation, and community identities.

This site asks why are some people and their stories invisible in Montgomery County histories and commemorative landscapes. This site will also offer some alternative stories to the ones produced by local historians, historic preservation agencies, community boosters, and the press.

Welcome to Invisible Montgomery.
