Many of our country's Founding Fathers hale from the Commonwealth of Virginia. This course will look at several of our Founding Fathers, who lived within a 2-hour radius of our current nation's capital, and their famous residences. Marc Leepson will fascinate us with the story of the Levy family's quest to save Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Susan Schoelwer will talk about Mt. Vernon and her work to restore it to its original plantation estate at the time George Washington lived there. Patrick O’Neill will give us insight into James Madison’s Montpelier and James Monroe’s Oak Hill and Highland residences. In conjunction with a local field trip to Mason Neck, VA, a staff member of Gunston Hall will give a talk and tour of the home and the little-known Founding Father, George Mason.
