Monroe County Courthouse

Whether you prefer the convenience of easy I-75 access or a room with a view and a hot country breakfast, you'll get a safe, comfortable night's rest in one of Forsyth's more than 1,100 rooms. And while you are here, savor the flavors of some of the South's finest fare, from Southern-fried chicken to fried green tomatoes to shrimp and grits.

One of the city's main attractions is the Forsyth Commercial Historic District. This historical area includes the Courthouse Square and structures from the mid-to-late 1800s. Many of the structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Explore the past and possibly discover your roots in the Monroe County Museum and Genealogy room, open Wednesday through Friday in the old train depot. Complete your tour of days gone by with a visit to the Confederate Cemetery, final resting place of 299 soldiers. Make it a point to return to Forsyth the second weekend in March for the annual Forsythia Festival on the Courthouse Square, featuring some of the finest artisans and craftsmen, live entertainment and children's and youth activities.
