The goal of the Monroe County History Center is to provide information and resources about Monroe County. The Monroe County History Center provides a variety of services and functions to meet this goal. They collect artifacts and records. Through their research, they gather context for their collections. They make their work accessible to the public.
“We accomplish this through exhibits that capture and tell important stories about the county’s past,” says Executive Director David Vanderstel.
The Monroe County History Center also contains a library with resources that trace local government, genealogy, and other records of the community. These resources are available to the public, and they serve as a great asset to professional researchers and scholars. Their online catalog serves the community and those outside of Monroe County as well.
