Monticello, a Family-Friendly Community
Monticello is located in an area scenic with abundant evergreen forests which support year-around hunting and fishing opportunities.
The town is strategically positioned halfway between Little Rock, Arkansas and Monroe, Louisiana and is an education hub in the area.
Monticello is home to UAM, the southeast branch of the University of Arkansas, and to two public school systems. Residents pride themselves on the local sports infrastructure that range from football and soccer leagues to swimming competitions and softball games.
