  • Ash Lawn–Highland

    Ash Lawn–Highland, located near Charlottesville, Virginia, USA, and adjacent to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, was the estate of James Monroe, fifth President of the United States. Purchased in 1793, Monroe and his family permanently settled on the property in 1799 and lived at Ash Lawn–Highland for twenty-four years. Personal debt forced Monroe to sell the plantation in 1825. Before and after selling Highland, Monroe spent much of his time living at Oak Hill. President Monroe simply called his home "Highland." It did not acquire the additional name of "Ash Lawn" until after his death. The estate is now owned, operated and maintained by Monroe's alma mater, the College of William and Mary.
