Discover the Town of Monroe, New York

Monroe, NY

The Town of Monroe has a rich and fascinating history, dating back to the 1600’s, when Dutch and English settlers made their way to this place that had lands good for farming, plenty of water, good access to the Hudson River, and surrounded by mountains in the Ramapo Valley. The Monroe Historical Society has done a wonderful job of documenting Monroe’s history through photos and stories of the town as it was and as it grew into the town we know today.

Cheese, dairy and mining were once thriving industries here, and it was in Monroe that the cheese processing called Velveeta was born. Today Monroe is home to numerous businesses and restaurants, and is in close proximity to Woodbury Common Premium Outlet with over 220 upscale outlet and factory stores. Also of note is Museum Village, a living history museum that lets visitors experience life in the 19th century.
