Monroe County Historical Society
Frontier settlement, family traditions, early industry,
enslavement, civil war, sacrifice, and freedom – these
are some of the stories in our Monroe County heritage. Our
Society exists to preserve these stories and their visible artifacts.
Our museum, on Main Street in
Union, operates seasonally. Several
publications are available
locally and by mail order. Our special
projects help to preserve
our historic legacy.
We welcome you to enjoy Monroe County's heritage with us.
Our quarterly meeting on Sunday, October 11, at 2pm, will be held at
Ames Clair Hall in Union. Jim Glanville will highlight the life of
