The City of Monroe is one of the most historic cities in Michigan. Well known as the home of Gen. George A. Custer, World Headquarters of La-Z-Boy Incorporated and having the Historic River Raisin running West to East into Lake Erie, Monroe is fast becoming an arts and cultural hotspot. The River Raisin Jazz Festival that takes place the 2nd weekend in August each summer, attracts over 40,000 music lovers per year.
