Revised Tour of President Monroe's Home Reveals New Information
Tours at Ash Lawn-Highland
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -
New details about President James Monroe are coming to life in tours of his Albemarle County home.
Ash Lawn-Highland hosted its annual open house Sunday featuring revised tours.
The tour now includes new information about James Monroe's contributions to the early decades of the United States. Visitors also take a new route through the presidential property.
"We decided to change things up a bit this year,” Sara Bon-Harper said. “Instead of entering the 1880s wing and moving on into the Monroe House from there, we now go around the house, look at the smaller Monroe period structure and enter a different door."
Sunday's event included live music and demonstrations of wool processing and paper marbling.
