Ash Lawn-Highland

Ash Lawn-Highland

Don’t miss Ash Lawn-Highland, just a few minutes up Route 53 from Monticello, the 535-acre estate of President James Monroe and his wife, Elizabeth Kortright Monroe, which today evokes the atmosphere of a working plantation. Visitors enjoy the Monroes’ refurbished home, their elegant American and French furnishings, costumed crafters, boxwood gardens, picnic spots, grazing cattle and glimpses of Monticello. Children delight in visiting the sheep, chickens, peacocks and rolling hoops on the lawn.
