This book reflects the growth of this nation. How Monroe grew from a small settlement to the growing city it is today is a testament to the leaders of the past and the foundation that they built. Showing where we have come from will help us to build the future of Monroe and nurture its connections to much larger regions. Our place in history, as well as our place along I-75, will hopefully reflect positively as people look back over the past 200 years and when they look back in another 200 years from now.
