Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 19, 1960):
For 76 years, this was the residence of James Madison (1751-1836), fourth President of the United States (1809-1817). Madison was dubbed the "Father of the Constitution" for his pre-eminent role in the Constitutional Convention. He is buried here with his wife.
In 2000, the NHL received a Save America's Treasures grant for $1,000,000. In 2003, the Montpelier Foundation launched a complete restoration of the mansion. The project is expected to be completed in 2008.
