The Monroe Historical Society holds rich, varied, and ever-growing collections of objects, published materials, images, maps, and manuscripts relating to Monroe’s history and genealogy, dating from earliest settlements to the present. By actively acquiring objects and papers, we maintain a diverse permanent collection for use in exhibits, education, and research.
Our staff and volunteers are always working to input information into our collection databases, but it’s a work in progress. Stop by our museum to see our full collections and get a close up look at Monroe’s history.
If you have items to donate, please contact us at (360) 217-7223 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We preserve, catalog and research objects for use in our exhibits and educational programs. Free admission.
Original diaries, letters, documents, ledgers, maps, daybooks, genealogies, photographs, drawings, other related materials.
From homestead property boundaries to transportation routes, maps are a great way to learn about history.
This list represents a small sampling of the stories collected by and available through the Monroe Historical Society.
