History lovers, travelers and archaeologists rejoice. The "Discovering Madison" exhibit has opened in Montpelier.

Nestled on a hilltop in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Montpelier was the lifelong home of James Madison, father of the Constitution and the nation's fourth president, and his wife Dolley.

The exhibit uses the main house, landscape, cemeteries and archaeology sites of the 2,700-acre estate to tell the Madison story and interpret plantation life during his time.

The estate is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. through November. For more information, contact (540) 672-2728.
