Monroe’s City History
Before being officially incorporated in 1902, and its naming after President James Monroe by John Vanasdlen, Monroe Washington actually located one mile away to be near the anticipated right-of-way of the Great Northern Railroad. But as luck would have it was finally built by Tye City (near the current location of Downtown) so John moved the city and the name buildings and all. During the City’s early years it experienced excellent growth due to the railroad and the two other major employers Pacific Coast Condensed Milk Company and the newly formed Monroe Commercial Club. But it wasn’t until the construction of Highway 2 and Highway 522 that Monroe started to experience its second wave of change.
