Twenty new engraved stone pavers have been added to the walkway around the historic Settlers Cottage in front of the Montgomery Village Hall, joining more than 200 engraved pavers previously installed to commemorate residents or businesses in the Village. These new pavers were set in place to honor those who served on the Village Board during the past 30 years.
Long-time residents will recognize the names of many of these local officials, such as Gary Pregel, who served as a Trustee from 1989-1993 and as Village President from 1993-1997, and Nan Cobb, who served as Village Clerk for 18 years, from 1980-1998.
“Reading the paver inscriptions on the path is kind of like a walk through the past,” said Village President Matt Brolley. “The pavers contain many familiar names of local teachers, former and current businesses, friends and neighbors. We are happy to have added these new pavers as a permanent remembrance of the men and women who gave of their time to serve the Village and its residents, and we hope people will stop by during Montgomery Fest to read the paver inscriptions and to visit Settlers Cottage.”
Montgomery’s Historic Preservation Commission sponsors the sale of these pavers as an ongoing fundraising project for the restoration of Settler’s Cottage and other historic preservation projects.
Families and businesses can leave their permanent mark on Montgomery by purchasing a brick engraved with their own name or in memory of a loved one. Two sizes of pavers are available. A 4” x 7” brick costs $100 and can contain up to three lines of engraving. The larger 7” x 8” brick costs $200 and holds up to four lines of engraving.
