Here's to You James Monroe

Recently we visited Ash Lawn Highland since it's been quite a while and had a wonderful tour of the house and grounds. Although smaller in scale than Monticello, Ash Lawn offers a nice contrast to the lives of Monroe and Jefferson. Of course, my favorite part is visiting the grounds and the resident peacock.  Rarely do we have time to get away from the Inn, but it was a nice break to enjoy the serene setting and to brush up on local history.
