Monmouth is a Willamette Valley community which lies southwest of Salem along Highway 99W. Its sister community of Independence lies to the east.

The founding of a town (1855), a university (1856), and a church (1856) fulfilled plans of pioneer Christians who traveled by covered wagon from Monmouth, Illinois, to the Willamette Valley.

Attractions in the area include Western Oregon University, Jensen Arctic Museum, Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge and National Corndog Day.

Agriculture (fruit, hops, corn, brans) and live stock ranching (poultry, hogs, sheep, cattle) are the main staple for Monmouth's ecomomic stability.
