The 2019 Montgomery County History Conference

Montgomery County History Conference

Each year in January, the Montgomery County Historical Society holds a day-long conference on various aspects of local history. Upwards of 200 people attend this annual event, which has been held since 2007. This year, I am very honored for the invitation to speak about the history of Reed Brothers Dodge at the History Conference on Saturday, January 26 at 12:45pm.

2019 Montgomery History ConferenceThe PowerPoint presentation will follow the dealerships historic timeline which showcases how Reed Brothers Dodge came into being, and how the company overcame the inevitable changes and challenges throughout almost a decade of being in business. More than 100 photographs will be featured, 60 of them rare, historic images taken by the dealership’s founder, Lewis Reed.

This one-day conference is a place for all people to explore and celebrate the many aspects of our past that shape our community to this day. The conference will be held at the Bioscience Education Center located at 20200 Observation Drive on Montgomery College’s Germantown Campus.

About Reed Brothers

I am a co-owner of the former Reed Brothers Dodge in Rockville, Maryland. Lewis Reed, the founder of Reed Brothers Dodge was my grandfather. We were a family-owned and operated car dealership in Rockville for almost a century. I served in the United States Air Force for 30 years before retiring in the top enlisted grade of Chief Master Sergeant in July 2006. In 2016, I received the Arthur M. Wagman Award for Historic Preservation Communication from Peerless Rockville for documenting the history of Reed Brothers Dodge in both blog and book format. This distinguished honor recognizes outstanding achievement by writers, educators, and historians whose work has heightened public awareness of Rockville’s architectural and cultural heritage, growth and development.

    Congratulations for receiving this honor. The 2019 Montgomery County History Conference attendees will have a fine speaker with a fascinating viewpoint of the 20th Century history of the county. I am sorry that distance prevents my being able to attend. Perhaps you can post a summary of your remarks on this blog on down the road. Season’s Greetings on this December 1, 2019.
