Monroe County, Pennsylvania was formed from Pike & Northampton counties on April 1, 1836. The county was named in honor of James Monroe, fifth President of the United States.

Monroe's county seat is located in Stroudsburg, incorporated as a borough on February 6, 1815, and named for Colonel Jacob Stroud, a settler. He built a home for his son, which has been restored and now operates as a museum by the Monroe County Historical Association at the intersection of Ninth Street and Main Street.

The county clerk has marriage records from 1885, divorce records from 1844, and probate and civil court records from 1836.
