Genealogy Trails of

Monroe County, Indiana

Monroe County, named in honor of our 5th president, James Monroe is located in the scenic southern part of the state, about one hour south of Indianapolis. The location was determined by the U.S. Census Bureau to include the mean center of the U. S. population as of the 1910 census. The county boundaries were formed on the 10th of April 1818 from territory then included in Orange county. The county now borders Morgan, Owen, Greene, Lawrence, Jackson and Brown counties. The county seat Bloomington was first settled in 1819 and is best known today as home to Indiana University. The population has grown from 2,679 per the 1820 enumeration to 120,563 citizens in 2000.
