Ash Lawn/Highland Visit

After spending the better part of Wednesday at Monticello, I grabbed some lunch and made my way over to Ash Lawn – Highland, the home of President James Monroe and his family.  The tour was interesting and informative, but again, my favorite part was speaking with some of the not-necessarily-guide guides.   Martha gives an interesting presentation of cooking techniques in the 19th Century.  She’s become a master of the dutch oven!  But, she also has made it her business to know a lot about the property and its history in general.  It finally occurred to me that I should try and capture some of what she had to say!  She was most gracious and agreed to let me video her remarks on how Ash Lawn – Highland came to be open to the public through the foresight of Jay Winston Johns:
