Montgomery County Commissioners Court approved a historical marker on Nov. 14 for the Tamina Community Park as one of a number of efforts to revitalize the area.

Two-minute impact

The community of Tamina was approved to receive a state historical marker at the Tamina Community Park to recognize the area, which dates back to the late 1800s.

The marker was granted after a year of efforts by the Montgomery County Historical Commission to get the area recognized as a state historical site.

Quote of note

“This is another historical move. ... I want to publicly thank the Montgomery County Historical Commission and also [MCHC member] Miss Annette Kerr. The county has done a lot to make strides in this area and be recognized,” Montgomery County Precinct 4 Commissioner Matt Gray said.

What else?

Revitalized focus has been on the Tamina community over the last two years as the county and city of Shenandoah worked to bring new infrastructure to the area. The historical marker is another step in the overall process to bring awareness to the community, according to the Montgomery County Historical Commission.
