The Charlottesville area draws both U.S. and international visitors intrigued by how the area that was shaped by the country’s founding fathers. Hundreds of thousands of visitors each year tour Monticello, the elegant mountaintop home Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, planned and designed in painstaking detail. Ash Lawn-Highland, the Charlottesville residence of the fifth U.S. president, James Monroe offers a unique perspective on the working farm and estate that friend, neighbor and fellow President Jefferson too understood. A short 30 minute drive from Charlottesville is Montpelier, the beautiful home of fourth president, James Madison.
Jefferson’s most important legacy, however, lies in the heart of Charlottesville. One for which the architecture is merely the outer trappings to underlying ideals: The Rotunda and adjoining Pavilions that form The Lawn at the University of Virginia founded what is today one of the top universities in the nation, fulfilling Jefferson’s vision of creating a “bulwark of the human mind in this hemisphere.”
While these sites form a triple crown for history lovers, the region offers much more for anyone fascinated by glimpses of the challenges, culture and quirks of colonial life, including a free walking tour of historic downtown.
