|Old Union County Courthouse, Monroe|
Our last stop of the day was at the Old Union County Courthouse in Monroe, so that I could take a quick shot. It's one of the prettiest courthouses I've seen. Part of me wishes we'd had time to go inside. Maybe another time!
Union County was formed in 1842, its name a compromise between the Whigs and the Democrats at the time. Its location next to Mecklenburg County (home of Charlotte) seems to be helping its growth. Monroe, the county seat, was named for James Monroe, the 5th president of the United States.
The visit to Union County was short but fun! (And thanks, Junelle, for being our hostess!)
The rest of my Union County pictures are here.
