  • Details

    Montpelier was built in the 1780s as a plantation for agriculture and iron production. Now a National Historic Landmark, it preserves the histories of the free and enslaved residents who lived there. The property was home to four generations of Snowdens, as well as enslaved individuals documented to have lived here, like Nance and Catte Creek, and Ben, a blacksmith. Learn more about the site and the daily life of the residents as they are reflected through architecture, archaeology, original documents, and historical interpretation.
