A SHORT INTRO TO MONTFORD’S RICH HISTORY

While most of the development in Montford was single-family residential, the neighborhood was dotted with private hospitals. Founded by Dr. Robert S. Carroll, a distinguished psychiatrist, the old Highland Hospital located off the northern end of Montford Avenue was the scene of a deadly fire in 1948. Among the victims was Zelda Fitzgerald, artist and wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Today the hospital features offices and shops, and Dr. Carroll's home, his Beloved Homewood, serves as a wedding and event space.

Historic Riverside Cemetery in Montford is the final resting place of a number of famous people, including authors Thomas Wolfe and William Sydney Porter (better known as O. Henry), Confederate General Robert B. Vance, North Carolina Governor Zebulon Vance, and many others.

MONTFORD OFFERS A VARIETY OF AMENITIES AND ATTRACTIONS TODAY

Located in the heart of the Montford neighborhood, the city-run Montford Center features a climbing wall and gymnasium. Sign up for one of dozens of clubs, children's summer programs, or just stop by in the afternoon for pick-up basketball. The center is surrounded by the Montford Recreation Complex, which features a playground, tennis court, lighted ball field, and amphitheater.

The Montford Community Association is very active, coordinating lots of monthly outreach programs through their website and newsletter. Many residents of Montford are very concerned about the environment and sustainable living. The MCA’s monthly newsletter includes green tips like weeding out invasive plants from your garden, updates from the city's recycling program, or the best way to compost your jack-o-lantern. Montford also features a bountiful community garden on Pearson Avenue where residents can learn even more about sustainable gardening practices.

Montford summers are alive with activity. The Montford Park Players, North Carolina's longest-running Shakespeare troupe, presents free theatre in the park all summer long. Each May, Montford residents come together for the Montford Music & Art Festival. This unique festival features more than 100 vendors of art, crafts, plants, and food; 20 groups performing across two stages; and a children's area. If running is your passion, the Hot August Night 5K is a great way to tour the neighborhood.
