The dates for this garage sale were chosen to coincide with Montgomery’s Fall Clean-Up service that will take place the week of Sept. 17. Unsold items from the garage sales can be disposed of free of charge on those dates. Remaining items in good condition can be dropped off at the Salvation Army store at 1590 Douglas Road or the Goodwill store in the Ogden Hill Shopping Center at routes 30 and 34.
This event is sponsored by Montgomery’s Historic Preservation Commission.
The $10 participation fee will go to preserving Settlers Cottage. The village’s oldest structure, Settlers Cottage was built around 1840 by Montgomery’s founder, Daniel Gray. It was slated for the wrecking ball in 2003, but a group of preservationists convinced the village to save it.
