About 25 minutes from our home is the estate of another former president (I’ve already mentioned Monticello), James Monroe. A visit to Ash Lawn-Highland will consist of a 35 minute home tour, exploration of the grounds, a visit to the museum shop, and perhaps a picnic lunch (they have complimentary picnic blankets). Admission is $8 for residents, $14 for out-of-state (though we residents get one free admission if we bring some visitors).
