Monroe Courthouse

Monroe North Carolina

Monroe is a good example of an old Southern county seat with its courthouse square and legal center.  Founded in 1844, Monroe developed as a business center with the cotton industry and the railroad as key early influences.  The downtown retains the renovated old Italianate red-brick courthouse, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as the South Monroe Historic District, an area with magnificent mansions as well as more modest homes and apartments.

Monroe, located in the heart of Union County, is Charlotte's next door neighbor.  It is approximately 15 miles from southern Charlotte and Interstate 485.  Charlotte Douglas International is about a 40 to 50 minute drive from Monroe while the Monroe Airport, a general aviation facility with more than 2000 flights per year, is located within the city.

Roosevelt Boulevard, or Highway 74, is the main retail and business artery in Monroe. A number of big box retailers, auto dealerships and the Monroe Mall, which is being refurbished, are located along this roadway.  Old Charlotte Highway, paralleling Highway 74, has a number of industrial businesses as does the business park at the Monroe Airport.

Monroe's award-winning hospital is part of the Carolinas Healthcare System, the largest and most comprehensive healthcare provider in the Carolinas.  Carolinas Medical Center-Union has more than 120 physicians in a wide range of specialties.



Monroe Historic Home

Monroe History

The arrival of the railroad and the cotton industry were catalysts for Monroe's early history. The railroad brought manufactured goods to Monroe and hauled away regional agricultural products.  Businesses began to develop around the courthouse square, including the first store of the Belk Department Store chain.  A number of commercial buildings built before and after the turn of the century still stand in downtown Monroe.

There are a number of historic homes in downtown Monroe.  These residential areas offer beautiful architecture and relatively affordable homes compared to the historic areas of Charlotte.  The City of Monroe is preparing a downtown Master Plan that will address how to preserve Monroe's historical charm while increasing the vibrancy of its commercial and residential  core.
