Cemeteries at Madison's Montpelier Preview American History TV traveled to James Madison’s Montpelier in Orange County, Virginia to learn about the Madison family cemetery and a nearby slave cemetery. We also visited Mr. Madison’s “temple,” a Greek and Roman inspired gazebo covering a former ice house.

The restored Montpelier mansion and estate is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and operated by the Montpelier Foundation and is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the fourth President, often referred to as the “father of the Constitution.”

Our guide is Montpelier Foundation president Michael Quinn. close
