The bank was founded in 1905 as Monroe State Savings Bank.[1]

In 1940, it acquired Dansard Bank.[1]

In 1950, the bank opened its second location, a branch in Ida, Michigan.[1]

In 1968, the bank changed its name from "Monroe State Savings Bank" to "Monroe Bank & Trust".[1]

In 2001, the bank expanded into Wayne County, Michigan.

In October 2008, the bank acquired Main Street Bank of Northville, Michigan after it suffered from bank failure and was shut by regulators.[2]
