The idea of a museum in Monroe began in early 2013 and first opened the doors to the public with a preview of the museum in 2015. It had its official Grand Opening in November last year and continues to get support from the community. That support was evident again Tuesday when the the Board of the Monroe Museum was presented with a $2000 grant check from the Junior Board of the Watson-Brown Foundation.
The Monroe Museum presents the history of the city from even before it existed to the present day. Last year, Liberty First Bank pledged $5000 a year for five years to help support the museum. You can find out more about the early beginnings of the Monroe Museum in an article that published in the 2015 issue of Walton Living Magazine. You can also follow the progress of the museum, on the Facebook Page.
