The Town of Montgomery was granted by the Vermont General Assembly on March 15, 1780 and chartered on October 8, 1879. Montgomery was named in honor of General Richard Montgomery 1738–1775, who was an American Revolutionary War hero. It may well have been at Ira Allen's suggestion that the town was named for Montgomery. Allen was one of the two officers who led an attack on Cape Diamond above Quebec at Montgomery's orders on the last day of the year, just before Montgomery was killed while leading the main attack on the city.
In 1963, part of Avery's Gore in Franklin County became part of Montgomery, with the other section becoming part of Belvidere. The population, according to 2010 census United States Census Bureau is 1,201.
