Located in the heart of downtown Monroe, this imposing Georgian style public building was built as a post office about 1910, on the site of General and Mrs. George A. Custer’s residence. The Monroe County Historical Society, founded in 1938, opened the first museum in rooms at the Sawyer House. This building was acquired in 1972 by the La-Z-Boy Chair Foundation as the second site for the growing Historical Museum.
