Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office celebrates 185 Anniversary with New Museum
On December 14, 2022, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office held a soft opening for the new Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Museum located at 2359 Holloman St in Conroe. The new museum coincided with the formation of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in 1837, 185 years ago.

Current and former employees and past Sheriffs of Montgomery County (Sheriff Joe Corley (1981-1993), Sheriff Guy Williams (1993-2005), Sheriff Tommy Gage (2005-2017)) were present at the ceremony and ribbon cutting, followed by tours of the museum. In the museum, visitors will see the enriched history and progression of the Sheriff’s Office from a small rural county in 1837 to the 7th largest Sheriff’s Office in the State.
After the Presentation of Colors by the MCSO Honor Guard, National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance, Invocation and Introduction, Sheriff Rand Henderson shared with the audience the history of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the accomplishments and innovations over the years. The first Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will serve to deepen the understanding of past and present law enforcement through the collection, preservation, and presentation of historic objects.
Museum Committee Members, under the guide and vision of Sheriff Rand Henderson and Chief Deputy Damon Hall, worked together to make what the museum is today and includes: Major Tim Cannon, Captain Dan Norris, Lieutenant Scott Spencer, Sergeant Charlie Sullivent, Sergeant Phillip Viands, Detective Tom Gannucci, Detective Jeromy Howze, Detective Fadi Rizk, Specialist Steve Squier, and Melissa Garcia.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will announce the museum’s grand opening date in the near future, most likely in Spring 2023.
