“Historical Swaim-Wilder homestead!”
Swaim Park is part of an original farmstead with the Wilder-Swaim farmhouse still standing on the corner of ZigZag Road and Cooper Road. This historic building is c. 1832 and is open to the public for special tours and events throughout the year. The Montgomery Historic Preservation Association maintains historic documents, photographs and artifacts in this home and during tours, the public can touch and feel the history of our home town coming alive. To complement the farmhouse, the Lazy Daisy Garden Club maintains an heirloom garden in the backyard. Swaim Park also offers a variety of passive and active spaces for fun play and for quiet respite. Todd Pond, with its natural landscape, ducks, geese and pathway is often used for fishing and reflection. Each June, the Montgomery Kiwanis Club offers a fishing contest for kids at this pond. We ask that you have fun catching fish but release them back. There is also an overlook and decorative fountain on the hillside inside the park that the Montgomery Citizens’ Leadership Academy class of 2008 built to offer seating for people to watch the pond activity or keep an eye on children playing on the playground.
