Former Montgomery Donuts Factory

This is the building where the highly acclaimed Montgomery Donuts were made.

They filed for bankruptcy several years ago, but what finally did them in was a roof collapse in February 2003 due to an extremely heavy snowfall.

IMHO, their Boston Cream donut was light years above the competition.

Those were some "kick-butt" donuts...Anyone who went to school in Montgomery County in the '60's through the '80's remembers how they were often used for fundraising in local high schools.

Dunkin and Krispy Kreme Donutsjust don't cut it when compared to the late and great Montgomery Donuts...

Fond memory #1: In the fall, they made pumpkin flavored donuts...I recall one Halloween when a family served donuts and hot cider outside to all takers...Hi to Gordon and Russell Hatch of Windermere subdivision in Rockville, wherever you are now.

I still remember Sundays at church (Crusader Lutheran in Rockville), where in the fellowship hall, boxes of Montgomery Donuts lay on tables flanked by large coffee urns and Styrofoam cups. My friends and I would often sneak away with a few donuts before the adults got out of services. I agree, Krispy Kreme and Dunkins can't beat fond childhood memories.
