Monroe is a town in Grafton County, New Hampshire, United States.

The town is located along a bend of the Connecticut River, across from Barnet, Vermont. It was originally chartered as part of Lyman.

In 1762 Colonial Governor John Wentworth issued a grant ("Number 11") to 64 persons obligated to clear, farm and settle one tenth of each of their parcels or forfeit the grant. Only two made the attempt but the charter was extended, in 1769, for another five years. Eleven of the original 64 grantees were named Lyman. In that same year, Wentworth also granted to one Colonel John Hurd (of Portsmouth part of the land which is today within the bounds of Monroe. The grant was named Hurd's Location and included five small islands in the Connecticut River, known as "Deer Islands," and a parcel of land from below the present Village Bridge to the foot of Fifteen Mile Falls/

In addition to Hurd's Location, and the governor's 500 acres, there were 23 lots of the 64 portions of Lyman located in "West Lyman," or the "Lyman Plain," now Monroe, making up less than 7,500 acres of the present area. A portion of Bath, to the south, was annexed in 1897.

According to the US census, the town has a total area of 23.8 square miles, of which 22.3 square miles is land and 1.1 square miles is water, comprising 6.27% of the town. The town is bounded by the Connecticut River (which is also the state boundary with Vermont) to its west and the long ridge of Gardner Mountain to the east.

As of the 2010 census, there were 788 people residing in the town, and according to the 2000 census there were 310 households, and 231 families residing in the town. The population density was 33.9 people per square mile. There were 333 housing units at an average density of 14.9 per square mile.
