Monroe

Description:

The smallest town in Franklin County, Monroe, lies in the farthest northwestern corner of the county. It is sometimes called Monroe Bridge because once the Hoosac Tunnel and Wilmington Railroad were completed, crewmen were told to leave the town’s mailbags at the Monroe bridge. In 1888, the post office was established and was known as the Monroe Bridge Post Office.

The town's eastern border with Rowe is along the Deerfield River. It is bordered by Vermont to the north and the town of Florida to the south and west.

The Outdoors

Although the town is small, Monroe attracts many visitors because of its big whitewater on the Deerfield River. Several rafting companies take people down the class IV Monroe Bridge section of river. Many people also enjoy boating and fishing further down the river on the calmer sections.

Monroe is home to part of the Monroe State Forest, which also extends into the town of Florida. In the forest, there is a lookout platform on Hunt Hill offering breathtaking views, and miles of trails for hiking and horseback riding, plus more than five miles of streams.
