As county mayor, I would like to welcome you to Monroe County, Tennessee.
Monroe County is ranked sixth largest in land area, among Tennessee’s 95 counties, and offers beautiful sights and outstanding opportunity. We are blessed with picturesque rivers, mountains, valleys, streams, and lakes.
I would like to extend my personal invitation for you to visit our county where you may travel our National Scenic Byway, the Cherohala Skyway.
