Swiss Cheese Capital of the U.S.A.
The City of Monroe is located in the lush rolling countryside of southwestern Wisconsin. The word “cheese” is synonymous with Monroe because in the 1840s the Swiss settled in this area and made Swiss cheese. They took cheesemaking from a kitchen art to a thriving business. Area cheese plants take great pride in producing European cheeses. Hence, Monroe is known as the Swiss Cheese Capital of the U.S.A., and has a mystique all its own. As it continues to prosper and grow, the city will always extend the hand of friendship to visitors and give them a warm feeling of “Willkommen.”
