The Monroe County History Center is a non-profit museum, genealogy/local history research library, educational facility and museum gift store that is housed in the historical Monroe County Carnegie Library. The History Center is operated by the 102 year old Monroe County Historical Society, Inc. and is self-sustaining. The Society is dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of the history of Monroe County. Our collections include materials and artifacts that reflect the shared heritage of our local area. We hope to show, through the use of these artifacts, how Monroe County fits into the context of southern Indiana, the Midwest, and the Nation as a whole.
