Monticello was designates county seat of Randolph County on December 10, 1808. Randolph County was renamed Jasper County on December 12, 1812 in honor of Revolutionary War hero, Sargent William Jasper. This County was pat of Baldwin county until 1807. Prior to 1805, all of the Baldwin County area was Creek Indian hunting Ground. 

The Monticello you see now is a pleasant mixture of old and new. With Approximately three thousand residents in the city limits, Monticello has kept its Southern small-town character. On August 8, 1997, the Monticello Historic District was officially listed in the National Register of Historic Places. 

The homes and businesses presented in this tour are just a few of the many historic structures in Monticello and Jasper County. For more information you can visit the Monticello Trailhead and Visitors' Center at 119 W. Washington Street, located on the Monticello Square to pick up a brochure about the tour.
