Past & Present History

 The first road was made by a surveying-party in 1798. The first settler was Colonel Steven Moulton, he settled in 1799 near the Corner of Monroe Ctr. Rd.
& Plymouth Ridge Rd.  
Monroe was organized in 1818 and named Monroe in honor of
President James Monroe.
Monroe Township originally only came to Rt. 84 , the land North of it began as Salem Twp., later changed to Conneaut.  On July 4, 1818 the settlers of Monroe annexed the 2 miles from Rt 84 to the present Conneaut line.  This makes Monroe the largest township in Ashtabula County being 7 miles in length and 5 miles in width.
