Monroeville History

In 1769 the initial Colonial settlers arrived. During the first half of the 1800's Monroeville was a farming community. In 1807 the Northern Turnpike was constructed which connected Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Monroeville was a stagecoach location on the new road. The city was named in tribute to Joe Monroe, a farmer who sold the land that was used to establish the municipality.

During the late 19th century, the region's coal mining was thriving. After a modern highway was constructed which connected Monroeville to Pittsburgh the population of the town substantially increased. Numerous companies built facilities in Monroe including US Steel, Westinghouse, Koppers Company, Bituminous Coal and PPG Industries.
