Monroe: At the Crossroads

Located 30 miles southeast of Des Moines, Monroe is close enough to the state capital to allow for community and access to entertainment, yet far enough away to offer the life style of small town living where neighbors greet each other by name. It is intersected by Highways 163 and 14, with Interstate 80 just 12 miles north of the city.
