History & History Related Items

Montgomery Village history:

Architect, Clarence Kettler and his two brothers, Milton and Charles, got together in 1952 to create Kettler Brothers, Incorporated. They had the idea to build a town and began to look around for the perfect spot. In 1962, they purchased land knokwn as the Walker Farm. Then, they began to add other land to their holdings. The first ground was broken on 28 February 1966. Rather than leave the previous farm land empty except for the new homes, they planted 10,000 full-grown pin-oak trees. The community was taking shape. On 17 Oct 1966, the Montgomery Village Foundation was incorporated. The first models opened in August of 1967 and the first residents moved in on 25 September 1967.

Lake Whetstone was created carefully. The island was made by digging the bottom of the lake deeper before water was put in. The founders wanted the edges shallow for safety and even had the lake drained several times to make it just right. The lake finally opened in September 1967.
