Montpelier Foundation

The Montpelier Foundation inspires continuing public engagement with American constitutional self-government by bringing to life the home and contributions of James and Dolley Madison. Montpelier is a glorious 2,650-acre estate in Orange County, Virginia, and was the lifelong home of James Madison, America's fourth president. Established in 1998, the Montpelier Foundation assumed full financial and administrative responsibility of Montpelier in 2000. We are making Mr. Madison's lifelong home at Montpelier a window into his life and legacy, a place of education where visitors, scholars, and educators can explore the ideas of the Father of the Constitution and get to know America's 1st First Lady.
