"University Town with a Museum" Monmouth by glabah

Monmouth Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 5 photos

Monmouth is known for two things: it is the home of Western Oregon State University, and it is known as one of the last cities in the Pacific Northwest to end the prohibition on selling alcoholic beverages. For a university town, it may seem unusual that the sale of alcohol was prohibited until November of 2002, but such was the case. Instead, many people just went to nearby Independence.

There is a third thing that Monmouth should be known for, but really isn't. This is the home of the Paul Jensen Arctic Museum.
