He will also offer two Walking Tours through Downtown Monroe

In a week’s time, Nov. 30, 2021, the City of Monroe officially celebrates its Bicentennial – 200 years of existence. So let the week of celebrations begin!

In honor of the celebration, Monroe historian Steve Brown will again present the rich history of Monroe in another of his Then and Now series. If you haven’t seen one before, it’s a real treat. Anyone who has seen his presentations, is a friend or follower of the Monroe Museum’s Facebook page, or has taken a walk through Monroe on one of his history tours, knows how vast Brown’s knowledge is of Monroe and its people, then and now.

Brown will also host two Walking Tours through downtown Monroe offering those in attendance an opportunity ask him questions on items of interest that once were, or are now, what make up the City of Monroe.

The events begin this Sunday and are:
