Monroe County Historical Society

Museum Group Frontier settlement, family traditions, early industry, enslavement, civil war, sacrifice, and freedom – these are some of the stories in our Monroe County heritage. Our Society exists to preserve these stories and their visible artifacts.

Our museum, on Main Street in Union, operates seasonally. Several publications are available locally and by mail order. Our special projects help to preserve our historic legacy.

We welcome you to enjoy Monroe County's heritage with us.
