Originally named Kishkekosh after a famous Native American chief, the name was changed to Monroe County in honor of President James Monroe. The county seat is Albia, which is proud of its beautifully restored town square. The entire Albia square and central historic district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Monroe County Courthouse.
