Annual salute to veterans event now set for August in Montgomery.

Montgomery is a village located in Orange County, NY that is home to Thomas Bull Memoria Park. Thomas Bull Memorial Park currently spans over 719 acres. The development of the park was initiated in 1965, with the acquisition of four dairy farms, resulting in the construction of a picnic grove, an 18 hole championship golf course to be named Stony Ford Golf Course and The Lodge clubhouse. In 1965, the park was officially renamed the Thomas Bull Memorial Park, after one of the earliest settlers in the County.

The County Legislature approved the re-naming of Orange County Park after descendants of Thomas Bull donated the adjacent 189 acres of land and the historic 18th century homestead known as Hill Hold to the County.  Over the next several years, many new recreational facilities were added to the park to provide opportunities for individuals to participate in ice skating, skiing (no longer available), tennis, boating, fishing and equestrian activities.
