Tour the fabled homes of some of our nation's storied leaders, including Washington's Mt. Vernon and Jefferson's Monticello.
They were American royalty at a time when the country was still struggling to assert its independence from the British crown. In their world-famous homes, a vital piece of our national heritage is preserved.
This special edition of AMERICA'S CASTLES® visits two homes that are perhaps more worthy of that title than any other George Washington's Mt. Vernon and Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. In these exquisite buildings, countless priceless artifacts are preserved, providing a glimpse of the early years of the nation and the private lives of these presidents. See Jefferson's own drawings for his mansion, visit the Map Room at Monticello, off-limits to visitors, and get a behind-the-scenes tour of Mt. Vernon from the director of the site. It's a remarkable glimpse at two of the most important sites in America.
