Visitors and possible new residents have a new and improved guide to Montgomery County thanks to the Mount Ida Area Chamber of Commerce.

The new Mount Ida Area Chamber of Commerce Visitor and Relocation Guide is now available at several locations around Montgomery County.

The new guide features a plethora of information regarding all aspects of the county.

Montgomery County is home to some of the best outdoor attractions in the South and the visitor guide offers information on all of them.

The guide is filled with information about local events such as the Quartz, Quiltz and Craftz Festival in October, Good Ol’ Days in May, and the annual Sorghum Festival held in October as well.

Visitors can also find valuable information regarding local artisan groups like the Ouachita Artists Gallery and the Montgomery County Council for the Performing Arts.

Those who may be coming to the area to take advantage of the local wilderness trails will find plenty of information about hiking and cycling the Ouachita Trail, LOViT and the Womble Trail.

If hunting, fishing and camping are more your style the visitor’s guide offers information regarding the Ouachita National Forest and Lake Ouachita.

A new feature of this year’s guide is the Montgomery County History Trail. This section offers valuable information and stories from just about every community in the county.

Many visitors fall in love with the community after just one visit. The visitor and relocation guide offers invaluable information for those considering moving to Montgomery County. The guide offers a page of helpful reference numbers and a chamber of commerce business directory.

The guide is a work of art, featuring photos taken locally by local photographers.

The cover art is a photo of the elevated walkway on the handicapped portion of the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail (LOViT) and was taken by Barbara Harvel.

Her photo was chosen from among 10 finalists in the chamber’s photo contest.

Daniel Adams submitted the second place photo and Karen Hamilton entered the third place photo. Other finalists include Tom French, Kenneth Davidson, Gracie Wisener, Courtney Macejewski, Mary Shaw, Paul Shepard and Dan Watson.

You can get your copy of the Mount Ida Area Chamber of Commerce Visitor and Relocation Guide at the chamber visitor center in Mount Ida, or any number of businesses in the area.
