Walking Tour

Take a stroll down Main Street and imagine the bustling Carnation Condensery with the smokestack billowing steam while a Great Northern Railway train passes through town loaded with cedar shakes and lumber. The Monroe Historical Society’s Self-Guided Historic Walking Tour booklet will take you on a journey back in time as you walk from Railroad Avenue to South Madison Street. Follow the guide as it takes you to specific locations where you can compare historic photos to the modern view of Main Street. The free booklet is available in the museum or click on this link below to download and print your own copy.
