Significance: Monroe Station has significance as one of two remaining police stations/motorist reststops constructed along what was and, to a large extent, remains an undeveloped stretchof the Tamiami Trail (U. S. 41) in Collier County and Big Cypress National Preserve...Despiteconsiderable change, Monroe Station remains one of few original roadside features alongthe Trail and—with a location at the Collier County intersection of what were twocompeting branches of the highway—is a unique touchstone to understanding the realestate and development frenzy that defined South Florida from the 1890s through theGreat Depression.
