Monroe occupies a narrow strip of land along the Connecticut River- it was once a part of Lyman. Monroe was authorized by the State in 1854 and named in honor of the country’s fifth President. The fertile river valley produced crops and the usual river side industries such as sawmills, gristmills, cider mills and blacksmith shops.
