History

A few early, exploratory settlers came to Monroe in late 1863. They were followed by the first permanent group of settlers, who arrived in Monroe during February of 1864. Most, if not all, of the first Settlers were members of The LDS Church, who had immigrated to Utah. At first the town was called South Bend (due to the proximity to a bend in the Sevier River), but soon after its settlement it was renamed Alma, in honor of the Book of Mormon prophet. It is estimated that by the end of 1864 around 20 families were living in Alma. They spent the first year building small homes and dugouts, along with clearing space for fields and pastures.

In April of 1865 the Black Hawk War broke out between local Native Americans and the Settlers of both the Sevier and Sanpete Counties. The war drastically ended the progress which was being made in creating farms and homes in and around Alma.

Alma had been settled in the middle of the Native American’s hunting grounds and as a result they started to go hungry. During the war Native Americans were constantly trying to steal the Settler’s stock for food, and they were successful during several raids.

Sometime during 1865 work began on a fort to provide protect for both the Setters and their stock. The fort was completed and contained several homes, a blacksmith shop, along with a corral and stockyard for the animals. This fort, named Fort Alma, provided some protection for several years, but things continued to get more dangerous and in April of 1867 the Settlers of Alma were evacuated. Most of the evacuees made temporary homes in Sanpete County, until they could return home.

An attempt was made during 1868 to resettle Alma, but the Settlers ran into Native Americans near Cedar Ridge (now Vermillion, Utah) and a battle ensued. They were unsuccessful in resettling Alma, and it was not until March of 1871 that Settlers were finally able to return to Alma. The following year they applied for a Post Office under the city name of Monroe, in honor of U.S. President James Monroe. By the end of 1872 the telegraph had been extended through Monroe, which connected it with the rest of Utah. In 1889 Monroe was incorporated as a town and remained that way until 1921 when it was incorporated as a city.

History of Monroe Hot Springs

In 1882, Thomas Cooper and his wife homesteaded the area on the east side of town where hot springs water emerged. They built a wood box to collect the water and offered it as a soaking pool. Later, around 1905, a building was erected. There was a dance floor, an indoor swimming pool, and many dressing rooms. Many people came from miles around by horse and buggy to enjoy soaking and dancing. In 1930 Farnsworth bought the hot springs. He was the leader of a band, and it became the house band. The slogan for the Monroe hot springs was, "the home of mirth and merriment". The hot springs enjoyed many years of prosperity until around 1950. The site is currently known as Mystic Hot Springs.

Monroe Today

Monroe currently has a Crisp Grocery Market, Texaco Gas Station, a Do-it Best Hardware, Sagebrush Grill Steak House, Bullies Drive-In, South Sevier Pizza, Monroe Main Center (Guitar dealer and movie rentals), a dentist, and a dance studio. Monroe also has many new subdivisions. Today Monroe is also nicknamed "The Little Green Valley" due to the many fields that surround the city.

Education

The schools for most of the surrounding areas are also located in Monroe, which has an Elementary School (Monroe Elementary), Middle School, and High School (South Sevier High School). School age children are traditionally bused from the neighboring towns of Central Valley, Annabella, Elsinore, Joseph and Sevier to Monroe to attend school. Navajo placement students are also traditionally bused to the schools from a dormitory in Richfield.
