Named after our fifth president, Monroe is a progressive, growing community that has protected the charm and appeal of its rural heritage. A family-oriented community that offers a high quality of life, Monroe features an outstanding school system and equally superb recreational facilities. Quiet and panoramic, the community is home to small shops that line a charming Main Street. Nearly 100 homes were constructed before 1779, many of them Georgians, Capes, and even pre-Revolutionary “saltboxes.” Single-family homes predominate on spacious lots that cover from one to three acres. Trumbull is conveniently located nearby for extensive shopping trips, although local businesses meet the daily needs for goods and service. Recreational highlights include state and local parks, nearby nature center, wilderness area, athletic leagues and ballfields, hiking trails, country clubs, playgrounds, pools, golf, youth and senior centers.
