James Monroe's Highland


Experience Highland, the official residence of fifth President James Monroe and his wife, Elizabeth Kortright Monroe, from 1799 to 1823.

Join us for our guided tour, lasting approximately 40 minutes, as we explore the fascinating life of the tireless public servant who fought and bled in the American Revolution, successfully negotiated the Louisiana Purchase, worked behind the scenes to push the Missouri Compromise through Congress, secured our nation’s borders, and issued our first hemisphere-wide foreign policy statement: the Monroe Doctrine. The tour also showcases an outstanding collection of 18th and early nineteenth-century furnishings, including many original to the Monroe family.
