Historically the Town was organized in 1799 as Chesekook (Cheesecock), named after the 1707 patent granted by Queen Anne, and was carved out of Cornwall. An act of Legislature passed in 1801 changed the name to Southfield, and in 1808 another act was passed giving the town its current name, Monroe in honor of the fifth President, James Monroe. The first town meeting was held in the home of John Weygant in April 1799. In 1864 'Old Monroe' was divided into three towns, Monroe, Highlands, and Southfields.
