So what makes Monmouth special? Why should you start or move your business to Monmouth?

In short, here are some top reasons:

  • We are the county seat.
  • We are the primary shopping destination for Warren and Henderson Counties (and draw from Knox County as well).
  • We are at the intersections of Routes 34 and 67.
  • We have the newest and best hotel in a 50 mile radius.
  • Over 14,000 vehicles a day pass through our community.
  • We are home to the region's largest employer (Farmland Foods).
  • We are the host community for a world class liberal arts college (Monmouth College).
  • We have a nimble, fiscally stable and technologically savvy municipal government.
  • Our cafe ordinance allows outdoor seating, eating and drinking for restaurants.
  • The entire downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 
  • We have a strong arts presence (visual, musical and performing).
  • Sixteen historic buildings have been renovated recently in our downtown.
  • We are the only municipality in the state to receive an inaugural Broadband Innovation Fund award.
