Brochures: Downtown Monroe Brochure

The City of Monroe was established in 1821 and is ideally located between Athens and Atlanta. Downtown Monroe prides itself on historic preservation, vibrant community events, speciality shops, and local restaurants. Previously, Monroe bustled with the textile and cotton industries. Now, these old cotton and textile mills have been beautifully restored and house the finest selection of antiques in the South.

Downtown boasts a weekly Farmers Market for local producers, monthly family-friendly events, and daily opportunities to appreciate history.  Among our Downtown attractions are:

Childers Park - A 17-acre passive park

The McDaniel-Tichenor House - A historic governor's mansion

The Davis-Edwards House - an 1800s home

Historic Wellness Walk - A walking tour of downtown

Monroe Antique Rail - An opportunity to board an Antique Trolley and tour the local antique malls, historic sites and attractions.
