Did You Know?

Barbers Park located in Montrose Township not only has a great view of the Flint river, but it also houses a very unique structure for Military Veterans.  This structure is called Veterans Bell Memorial, and started out as a tribute to honor a P.O.W. from the the Korean War.

This impressive bell is constructed of stainless steel and tips the scales at over two tons.  We encourage you to stop by and pay your respects to current and fallen Military Veterans.  Thank you to all who serve this great country.

Join Our Journey

The newly reestablished Chamber of Commerce's mission is to help promote and grow the Montrose economy in a professional and civic environment.  We plan on working with both the city and township to create a growth plan, for both our economy and the citizens of Montrose.

We cannot do this on our own - we will need your help.  How can you help?  We plan on using social media, so please visit and like our page on Facebook!   Sharing with your local friends will also help.  We will be holding regular, old school, face-to-face meetings where you can join us, and maybe even sign up on a committee.
