Montgomery IL Homes for Sale
Montgomery is located in both Kane and Kendall counties. There were 20,262 people living in Montgomery according to the 2020 census. U.S. Route 30 runs through the village and the village sits on both sides of the Fox River.
The initial European settler to arrive in the region was Jacob Carpenter, a resident of Logan County, Ohio. In 1835, Daniel S. Gray, hailing from Montgomery County, New York and brother to Nicholas Gray (who had previously settled out on a farm now within Kendall County) made a visit to the area. He was so taken with it that he expedited the relocation of his family the following year before constructing the first wooden house in the southern part of Montgomery near Fox River's west bank.
Elijah Pierce's tavern and Daniel Gray's mill were located across the river, each man having followed relatives from the east to this site.
A large tract of land was owned by Daniel Gray, who is considered the founder of Montgomery. The area was originally called Graystown. Then after several years, Gray convinced other homesteaders to call the settlement "Montgomery" after the county in New York where Gray and several others had come from.
Daniel Gray was quite an entrepreneur. He established six different businesses, plus one of the county's finest stone grain mills. He died while preparing for even more business operations. At the time of his death in 1855, Gray still owned most of the town's lots. The village did continue to grow as his heirs continued to sell these lots.
The village of Montgomery was incorporated in February 1858. Daniel Gray's son of Ralph Gray was elected as the first village president. The population of Montgomery remained steady at about 300 people throughout the rest of the 1800s.
Montgomery is served by five different school districts namely: #129, #131, #308, #115, #302
