Four relatives have opened the new eatery in the former home of Bill's Restaurant on Montgomery Road. And the reception has been good so far, they say.
Lupe Moyotl knows that sometimes you need to make a change. That’s why, when he and three of his family members started their own business in the former home of Bill’s Restaurant in Montgomery, they decided to go with a new name: Riverstone Restaurant.

Pat Torrance takes you behind the scenes of the first industries in the village, many of them the work of settler Daniel Gray.
Stationed tall and proud on the hillside facing the Fox River in Montgomery, the new village hall stands guard over a tiny yellow cottage; the oldest building in the village. This pair of buildings provides both a glimpse into a promising future and a reminder of the village’s humble beginnings: the larger one, young and strong, poised to march ahead, yet reluctant to leave its frail ancestor behind. Much of Montgomery’s history is contained in this area, including the large mill, still standing, built on the river to take advantage of the water power. This power gave birth to new factories and brought new settlers to the village. These historical buildings give silent testimony to the possibilities of what can be achieved. From early …
