Though certainly not as grand as Montecello, Ash LawnHighland is every bit as interesting. The grounds are just it as beautiful, but in a more serene and "every man" sort of way. The house is much smaller. The rooms are exquisitely furnished yet feel intimate and family friendly. There is a home-like and modest feel to the entire property that reflects the personality of the man who built it.
The kitchen and other areas under the house contain period artifacts and there are several hands on displays. Thereis a beautiful little garden between the visitor center and the house.
Our guide was amazing. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I came away with a better appreciation and understanding of the life and times of President Monroe.
