"This is where Wisconsin began during the 1820s when prospectors were swarming over the hills of Southwest Wisconsin. A "lead rush" give rise to the formation of a mining camp and by the 1830s word had reached Cornwall, England. A steady stream of Cornish immigrant families was followed by German, Irish and Italian families. Reflections of the Cornish influence are still evident today in the architecture and traditions, as well as our twinning association with the city of Redruth in Cornwall, U.K."

"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. . . . "
