The Bridge Street Historic District is the smaller of two that make up the downtown area of the village of Montgomery in Orange County, New York. It is located along Bridge Street, just off NY 17K as it enters the village by crossing the Wallkill River at Ward's Bridge, hence its name. The Union Street-Academy Hill Historic District is located immediately to the southeast.
