Summary
Article discusses the recent discovery that the cottage located on the estate known as Highland in Albemarle County, Virginia, and formerly known as Ash Lawn / Highland, has for years been misidentified as the home of James Monroe. Rather, archaeological investigation reveals that Monroe's home was much larger and destroyed by fire in the 19th century.
