Our Community

Monticello is more than a city, it's a community. Part of what makes us a community, is having places like our local parks to come together with our family and friends.

The City of Monticello is a vibrant community, proud of its rich heritage, excited about its recent growth, and eagerly looking forward to the possibilities of the future.

Monticello was founded in 1856 by second-generation Americans who migrated west in the mid 1800s and found the shallow banks of the Mississippi a natural place for settlement.

The City of Monticello is now a rapidly growing city of more than 13,500 located at the intersections of Highway 25 and Interstate 94.
