Monroe County is located at the southern tip of Florida and is best known as the county that includes the Florida Keys, and Key West Florida Micropolitan Area. Bordering Miami-Dade and Collier Counties, the islands stretch 100 miles into the Straits of Florida separating the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.
Monroe County was established in 1823 from a portion of St. Johns County and named for President James Monroe, fifth president of the U.S. In 1513, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon sailed past the keys. For the next three centuries, the keys became a haven for pirates and adventurers. Many English-speaking settlers came to the keys from the Grand Bahamas, and by 1821, when the U.S. acquired Florida, Key West was the state’s most populous city.
