Landmark Ornaments

History of the Landmark Ornament Project

Crain Eberhard

The 2015 Crain Eberhard Landmark Ornament

In 1997, Montgomery City Council voted to finance the restoration of the stained glass windows in the Fellowship Baptist Church which was formerly Hopewell-Montgomery Presbyterian Church (1829), a Landmark building and one of the first churches built in Montgomery.  The Landmarks Commission began a fundraising project to help with the cost of restoring the windows.  Each year, since 1997, Barker Ornaments of Oxford, Ohio, has been commissioned to make an ornament of a Landmark building.  Sales of the ornaments fund restoration of city-owned Landmarks. Montgomery is fortunate to have 32 Landmarks in the community.

Due to unforeseen circumstances with the supplier, the 2018 Landmark Ornament will not be sold this year.  City staff is working to locate a new vendor to create the ornaments and plans to resume the program in 2019.

Ornaments from previous years are available to purchase at Montgomery City Hall, 10101 Montgomery Road.  The price of ornaments has been reduced to $5.00 each or three ornaments for $10.00.  A complete set of 22 ornaments is $75.00.
