The Monroe, WI area is a wonderful place to live. We are centrally located, with access to Madison (less than an hour north), Milwauke (about 2 hours northeast), Chicago (about 2 hours southeast), and Minneapolis (about 5 hours to the northwest).
The community is clean, safe, and a great place for kids. We have quality schools, an art center (Monroe Art Center), a skate park, an indoor ice rink, and many recreational resources. The historic downtown is thriving and is the location for several community festivals,including Green County Cheese Days held every other year in September. We have the Green County Historical Museum and the Historic Cheesemaking Center.
We are the home of many diverse growing businesses, including The Swiss Colony, Monroe Truck Equipment, Orchid International, the Charlton Group, RR Donnelley Co., Minhas Brewery and many others. We are in the center of "cheese" country, with 13 specialty cheese factories in and around our community.
We have the Blackhawk Technical College, the Green County Young Professionals, many service organizations, farmers markets, a beautiful public library and strong religious communities.
Monroe is a great place visit AND you would like to live here!
