In October I visited Montpelier for the first time. What a treat to view the hard work of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Montpelier Foundation! Thanks to the Duponts we can enjoy the grand estate of James and Dolley Madison. A splendid couple-James the intelligent introvert and Dolley the vivacious extrovert! The guides do triple duty-descriptions of the restoration, anecdotes about James and Dolley and the importance of Madison in our group of Founding Fathers! History should be a habit! Check out the visitors' center, café and shop and the center for the study of our Constitution. Worth as much time as you can allocate! A feast for the eyes as well as the mind.
