Beautiful Greene County is the ideal central location to stay while visiting many of our regional historic sites. A scenic drive east takes you to Montpelier, home of James Madison. Or, head south through Charlottesville to tour Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and James Monroe's Ashlawn-Highland. Don't miss the experience of enjoying an 18th century lunch at Michie Tavern. The region is rich in Civil War sites and is part of the Journey Through Hallowed Ground, a National Heritage Area.

Greene County possesses a rich history of its own. The countryside is full of treasures of history and heritage for the whole family to explore and experience. The town of Stanardsville itself is both a State and National Historic District. Stanardsville is one of the most historically significant locations in the Piedmont Region. Incorporated in 1794, it was once a stagecoach stop on the way to the Shenandoah Valley and beyond. Most of its buildings were constructed prior to 1900.
