Heritage Museum of Montgomery County

Location: 1506 Interstate 45 N, Conroe, TX 77301, United States.

The Heritage Museum of Montgomery County is housed in the Grogan-Cochran home. It is a great place to learn the history of Montgomery County, Texas.

An important feature of the Museum is a replica of the office of Dr. C. B. Stewart, a local resident who served as the first Secretary of State to the Republic of Texas. Dr. Stewart designed the state flag and seal and created original maps of the county. The flag later became the official “Lone Star” flag in 1845 when Texas joined the Union. In May 1997, the Texas Legislature proclaimed Montgomery County as the birthplace of the Lone Star flag.

The Museum also offers a research room, oral histories of county residents, traveling exhibitions, a gift shop and several outdoor exhibits depicting the history of Montgomery County.
