Montgomery County

Kansas State Historical Marker
Montgomery County
      Until 1867 this was Osage Indian country. White settlement started when the government opened a strip along the east boundary for land-hungry settlers. The Osages quickly began selling claims to immigrants for a few dollars each. By 1869, when the county was organized, the Verdigris valley was alive with campers.
