Overview

In 1793, James Monroe built this home and farm adjacent to Monticello, his friend Thomas Jefferson's estate. After his eight years as the fifth president, he returned but was deeply in debt and was forced to sell. Monroe's alma mater, the College of William and Mary, now operates the farm. Visitors can see the vegetable and herb gardens, colonial craft demonstrations and rooms of the house displaying original belongings of the family. Charlottesville is about an hour from Richmond via I-64 west. Admission: $8 Adults; $7.50 Seniors; $5 Children 6-11. A combination ticket including Monticello and Michie Tavern is available.
