Take a Photo Tour of James Madison's Montpelier
Montpelier was the lifelong home of James Madison, Father of the Constitution, fourth President of the United States, and primary architect of the Bill of Rights. But this 2,600-acre property in the Virginia Piedmont is more than the home of a founding father. From its work with the descendants of Montpelier's enslaved community, to its heritage walking trails, to its extensive archaeology research project, this Historic Site has gone above and beyond the typical role of a traditional house museum.
