Woods Exploration Program

March 26, 2020 08:00 am - March 28, 2020 04:00 pm
Location: James Madison's Montpelier, 11407 Constitution Highway , Montpelier Station, Virginia

Explore historic sites within Montpelier’s woods and learn how archaeologists use terrain, metal detector surveys, and old growth trees to discover plantation and Civil War era sites across the 2,700 acre property. Participants will have a chance to explore three different sections of woods at Montpelier--the East Woods, Chicken Mountain, and the North Woods.

This three-day program begins Thursday 3/26 at 8:00am and ends Saturday 3/28 at 4:00pm. There is an optional complementary Signature House Tour on Sunday 3/29 at 2:30pm. This optional tour is recommended for first time visitors to get an overview of the Madisons and Montpelier since the tours during the program will be more specialized. Those staying in on-site housing will have the option of staying over Saturday night and departing Sunday morning.

Full program fee: $500
