We had an excellent tour guide but if had it do again, would have definitely skipped the virtual tour. Lots of original James Monroe items in what was originally the guest house but worth the time to visit.
When driving up the lovely avenue of trees , one expects a grand home to be there. Not so..but wait!, The ongoing archeological discovery of Monroe’s home’s original foundation lends a fascinating edge to the tour. Our guide was absolutely fabulous, and Made the history...More

My family and I recently visited after visiting Monticello. Ash-Lawn Highland is certainly very different. The house is actually not the original and simply built according to what archaeologists believe the house to have looked like. Nevertheless, it is placed in the same grounds which...More
