December 4 through January 5 Ash Lawn-Highland will be decorated for the holidays in historic style. Take a house tour during these dates, and you will see James Monroe’s home in holiday splendor.
When it’s cool outside and friends are gathering for the holidays, why not step back in time and visit a Christmastime of years past? See Monroe’s house Highland (ca. 1800) and the later Ash Lawn wing (ca. 1880) decorated for the winter season. Away from the hustle and bustle of today’s winter season, Ash Lawn-Highland offers a tale of history and a sense of years past. The house’s rich furnishings include many original Monroe pieces, and remind visitors of the timeless aspect of the holidays: visiting with family and friends.
