Monroe is all about cheese. The art and business of making cheese has kept the city thriving for more than 100 years. Local cheese factories welcome visitors with samples and retail sales. You can pair your favorite cheeses with a local brew; the town’s Minhas Craft Brewery, founded in 1845, is the oldest continually operated brewery in the Midwest producing the smooth lagers, ales and bock beers of the Berghoff label.
Downtown, the Green County Courthouse, an imposing Romanesque-style building dating from 1891 with a 120-foot clock tower, anchors Monroe’s town square. Round out your tour with visits to Turner Hall, the Historic Cheesemaking Center, and the Monroe Arts Center.
Monroe is also a trailhead for the 47-mile Cheese Country Trail, popular with ATVers and motorcyclists. Bicyclists prefer the Badger State Trail, a 33-mile railbed conversion highlighted by the 120-year-old Stewart Tunnel between Monticello and Belleville.
