Special Event: Independence Day Celebration from Monroe’s Highland
July 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Enjoy some of the memorable performances from the Heifetz Institute’s free annual Fourth of July Concert in the Highland Pavilion. Formerly known as Ash Lawn, Highland, the home of James Monroe, the fifth president of the United States, is adjacent to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia. Purchased by Monroe in 1793, the plantation was home to the Monroe family for nearly 25 years. Acquired by the College of William and Mary (Monroe’s alma mater) in 1974, Highland offers tours each day, hosts community and private events, and features a robust museum shop including a Virginia Artisans Room.
