Monroe History

The Village of Monroe was platted in 1817. The plat mentions two individuals - John H. Piatt and Nathanial Sackett. Piatt, a merchant of Cincinnati, seems to have been interested in the region for purely financial reasons. In the west, he had been the largest army contractor during the War of 1812. Sackett, on the other hand, was the founder of Monroe and settled in Ohio in 1816. The city was named after President James Monroe, the fifth President of the United States.
