Montgomery, Texas

Known as the "Birthplace of the Texas flag," Montgomery was established in 1827 as the second of Stephen F. Austin's colonies. Dr. Charles Bellinger Stewart, a resident of the town from 1838 to 1885, designed the first Republic of Texas flag and official seal, which was approved by the legislature and President Mirabeau B. Lamar in 1839. Dr. Stewart was the Republic's first Secretary of State and the first to sign Texas' Declaration of Independence.
