Monroe: Fact Sheet
Monroe is located in the extreme southeastern corner of Michigan’s lower peninsula, along the coast of Lake Erie at the mouth of the River Raisin. It is the largest city in Monroe County. Monroe began as a French settlement in 1780, when Fancois Navarre moved here from Detroit and built a cabin on land deeded to him by the Indians along the north side of the Riviere aux Raisins. A famous battle in the War of 1812 was fought along the River Raisin. This quickly developed into what became Frenchtown, only the third major community in Michigan by 1815. In 1817, an American community began along the south side of the river. It was named after James Monroe, fifth president of the United States, after he visited there in 1817. MOnroe is also know for being the childhood home of General George Armstrong Custer, Civil War hero, later defeated by the Indians at the Battle of Little Big Horn. His statue, erected by the State of Michigan in 1910, stands downtown by the River Raisin.Area 10.46 square milesPopulation 22,076 (2000 census)Dwelling Units 5,952 (2004 SEMCOG)Household Income $45,694 (2000 Census in 1999 Dollars)Per Capita Income $18,277 (2000 Census in 1999 Dollars)Median Housing Value $115,500 (2000 Census in 2000 Dollars)Altitude 581 feet (measured at the Detroit River) Monroe is Largest City in Monroe County 41.91 degrees north and 83.38 degrees west of the prime meridian Cultural Attractions: Monroe County Historical Museum Sterling State Park Monroe Multi-Sports Complex River Raisin Centre for the Arts River Raisin Battlefield Visitor’s Center
