Living in Monroe, MI
Centuries before French settlers claimed the land, Potawatomi Indian tribes inhabited the Great Lakes region. The town was very important in the War of 1812 because of its proximity to Detroit. When the city fell during the Siege of Detroit, the area was used as a base for American forces to take back Detroit in the Battle of Frenchtown. In 1817, Frenchtown was re-incorporated as the village of Monroe to honor the visit of President James Monroe to the Michigan territory.
Today Monroe residents enjoy a simpler way of life. With the banks of Lake Erie nearby, people here take advantage of lakeside bird watching, camping, fishing, boating, canoeing and hiking opportunities boasted by the Pure Michigan ad campaign. With a small town feeling, friendly neighbors and a tranquil natural environment, residents in Monroe enjoy a quality of life in the Midwest that is hard to find anywhere else.
