Montpelier, located near Orange, Virginia was the plantation estate of the prominent Madison family of Virginia, including James Madison, fourth President of the U.S.  In the early 1760s, Madison, Sr. built a structure that forms the heart of the main house at Montpelier today. Built around 1764, it has two stories of brick laid in a Flemish bond pattern, & a low, hipped roof with chimney stacks at both ends. The building of Montpelier represents Phase 1 (1764–1797) of the construction.
