Monroe Avenue Historic District

Greeley City, Weld County, CO

The Monroe Avenue Historic District (9th Ave. from 11th St. to 16th St., roughly) was designated by the Historic Preservation Commission on December 13, 1999 and is Greeley's first historic district. It was the home to many prominent citizens in Greeley, including town founder, Nathan Meeker, doctors, lawyers, teachers, bankers, public servants, etc. It is called the Monroe Avenue Historic District because prior to the establishment of the numbering system in 1884, the N-S avenues were named after famous men and the E-W streets were named after trees.
