OTHER INFORMATION

Monroe County is situated on the Ohio River where the land is generally hilly. One of the state's largest coal mines is located in the county.

Woodsfield, formed in 1814, is the county seat. The 1890's saw a temporary boom in oil and gas wells. Because the county is scenic and sparsely populated many riding clubs have been formed and stable horses are raised.

Agricultural industries include dairy products. Other industries are; metals, lumber products, aluminum, ferroalloys, and apparel.

Clerk of Courts has divorce and civil court records from early 1800s.
