The Square, Monroe, Wisconsin

We drove down to Monroe, Wisconsin again a of couple weeks ago and whenever we go there I have to visit the town square to take a few pictures. At the center of the square is the Green County courthouse and around the square you find some nice shops and places to eat. One of the shops’ windows offered a nice reflection of the courthouse so I snapped it. People in Green County are very proud of their Swiss immigrant heritage and their cheesemaking. In fact, this coming weekend, Sept 19-21 is the 100th Cheese Days festival. If you’re feeling a little hungry I definitely recommend Baumgartner’s (if you’re not planning to kiss anyone the rest of the day go for the Limburger with a thick slice of red onion on rye) and Pancho and Leftys (don’t pass up the nachos with smoked pulled pork).

      Thanks for commenting! Ya, Monroe is a very nice town. There are good places to eat and drink. Some nice local shopping and the local chamber of commerce seems to work very hard to host keep the downtown active. Cheese Days this weekend ought to be lots of fun. And if you haven’t had one of those Limberger sandwiches you’re missing out! :-)
