The Monroe Civic Center is a well-preserved example of mid-20th-century modernism on the outskirts of the city. The layout of the buildings around a central fountain plaza echoes a design philosophy also embodied by New York's Lincoln Center. The theatre renamed in 2004 after Monroe's 27th mayor, who served from 1956 - 1972 and 1976 - 1978 and oversaw the building of the Civic Center as well as the Louisiana Purchase Gardens & Zoo and the Monroe City Hall Complex.

(GNP) measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile. And it tells us everything about America except why we are proud that we are Americans. (Robert Kennedy, 1968)
