Rich in natural resources:  coal, forest, agriculture...now gas boom returns

Meet Monroe County (from wikipedia)
Monroe County was formed on January 28, 1813 from portions of Belmont, Guernsey and Washington counties. It was named after James Monroe, the US Secretary of State when the county was formed, and later fifth President of the United States.
On or about December 20, 2011, Exxon Mobil Corp., a New Jersey petroleum company, via its subsidiary XTO Energy, acquired 20,056 acres of Monroe County Utica Shale gas leases from Beck Energy.
