On the outskirts of Monrovia there is a place called “gravity hill”. Down a few winding backroads, and pass a few corn fields you will find it. Legend has it that a school bus stopped at the bottom of this hill and was struck by a train. To this day, if you park your car in neutral at the bottom of it you will get pulled back up the hill. They say it’s the spirits of the kids on that bus pushing you to safety. You often see people attempting this at gravity hill.

The town is home to a main street strip of local businesses, one school system, and countless farms. The school system is one elementary, and a combined middle and high school. Monrovia may not have big name business, a vivid nightlife, or diverse cultural scene, but it has something better, a strong community of loving people.

Monrovia sits in a rural area of southwestern Indiana. Most would consider this town to sit in “the middle of nowhere”. With a population of less than 1,000 people and only 360 households, you could call this a small town. Monrovia is small, but has an interesting community and rich history. The town was laid out in 1834 and officially became a town in 1995. Monrovia covers 1.7 square miles of solid land. In fact it is so tiny that the town does not have a single top light, roundabout, or four way stop in it.
