History Made Here

Quick stops (free or nearly free) to get a taste of history in downtown Monroe.

Historic Green County Courthouse – an icon on the Square, celebrating 125 years in 2016.  Pick up a brochure inside for a self-guided tour.  The History Room (upstairs) features photos and artifacts – like one of the original wooden hands from the clock in the tower.  Side note:  great photo opp in the Courtrooom (hint - you be the judge).

World of Beer Memorabilia – largest private collection of beer memorabilia in the world, located at Minhas Craft Brewery. 

Green County Historical Society – located in a historic church (check out the stained glass windows) dating back to the time of the Civil War.  Check out the collection of mustache cups and the one-room country schoolhouse.  Minimal admission.

Turner Hall of Monroe – a Swiss history lesson with authentic folk art and local memorabilia.  Side note:  Senator John F. Kennedy spoke here during his 1960 presidential campaign.

Bonus:  stay overnight at one of Monroe’s historic lodging properties – Ludlow Mansion or Victorian Garden B&B.
