About MonroeThe earliest homesteaders settled the rich river bottomlands along the Snohomish and Skykomish rivers in 1858. Originally called Park Place, the town was renamed for President James Monroe in 1889. It prospered first as a logging center, then later as a farming community. Scenic Stevens Pass Highway (US 2) follows the Skykomish River east into the Cascade Range.

Evergreen Speedway, located at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds a mile west of town on US 2 at 14405 179th Ave. S.E., offers racing and NASCAR-sanctioned events Saturdays from late March to late October; phone (360) 805-6100.
