History (short version)
Founded in 1822 by the American Colonization Society as a haven for freed slaves from the United States and the British West Indies. The city was named for James Monroe, then the president of the United States.
Until recently the city was still controlled by descendants of the early settlers who arrived between 1830 and 1870. Since it broke ties with the United States after 1871, it long remained an interesting cultural combination of pre– Civil War Southern American and West African influences. The city was damaged during the Liberian Civil War in the early 1990s. (from: Encyclopedia of Historic Places)
