Contemporary constructions, including craftsman, mid-century modern, and Tudor Revival homes, reflect various styles.

The long history of Montgomery gives it significant cultural heritage, with several historic buildings and structures within city limits. The Landmarks Commission and the Montgomery Historical Preservation Association are charged with conserving and protecting local landmarks.

Sites like the Montgomery Heritage Museum, the Dinsmore Homestead, and the Universalist Church of Montgomery embody the city’s traditions.
