WELCOME TO MONROE!
Although a few significant buildings have been demolished, such as the Monroe Opera House and Hotel Joffre, Monroe’s central business district still reflects the period of Downtown Monroe’s greatest prosperity as an agricultural and commercial center. The City of Monroe remains a hub of industrial and retail activity within the region and is a focus of culture and commerce within Union County. Millions of dollars in renovations and facade improvements, annual festivals, and new interest in professional housing have made Downtown Monroe the place for commerce and travelers alike.
Please enjoy your time in our historic district. Thank you for visiting Downtown Monroe.
