Learn more about Monroe
This territory was first known as Hurd’s Location or West Lyman. In 1769, James Hurd was granted five islands in the CT River between Lyman and Barnet, VT by Governor John Wentworth. Descendents of Hurd wanted to name the town after him but lost out to the name Monroe after President James Monroe for whom a mountain in the Presidential Range had recently been named. Monroe contains part of the Ammonoosuc Gold Fields where extensive mineral deposits have been successfully mined. This rural town, with its close-knit community, is a short distance from many ski areas. A picturesque town hall, with its grand, white columns and granite stairs, is certainly a beautiful sight. A place to visit while you are in Monroe is Pete and Gerry’s Organic Egg Farm, which has been raising free-range chickens for over three generations. It received the honor of the First Certified Humane Egg Farm in the country in 2003. This quiet little town has an Air B+B that will warmly welcome you; a restaurant called Farm to Fire Pizza which serves delicious pizza; a general store for a quick cup of coffee or a sandwich — all with people who will make you feel at home.
