- Created Date
This blueprint map of Monroe County, Tennessee was created for the county health department, as it provided medical and hygiene services to rural schools during the 1930s. The legend indicates "white schools,""colored schools," towns and small communities, district lines, roads, state highways, railroads, county lines, and state lines.
Monroe County was created in 1819, after the Calhoun Treaty saw the Cherokee ceded lands from the Little Tennessee to the Hiwassee River in East Tennessee to the United State Government. The county is named after President James Monroe, whose term coincided with the accession of this territory. The county seat is Madisonville, while the largest city is Sweetwater. TSLA has many of these county maps created by the local health departments.
