 Welcome to the City of Monticello!

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places since August 8, 1997. The Historic District of Monticello is formed by the commercial district in the center with residential neighborhoods radiating outwards. Six of the seven main roads leading to the town square are nearly identical two lane, tree lined streets with houses of varied architectural styles. The seventh road, Funderburg Drive is characterized by small lots with equally small houses, sometimes called saddlebag houses, situated a few feet back from the streets.

Architectural styles include Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne, Second Empire, Colonial, neoclassical, English Tudor and Craftsman. There are five cemeteries of historical significance in the city. The Monticello you see now is a pleasant mixture of old and new. With approximately 2,500 residents in the city limits, Monticello has kept its Southern small-town character. We hope you enjoy your visit!
