James Monroe was the fifth man to hold office as U-S President.
While his longtime home is located up in Charlottesville, the facts about his life aren't as well known as those of his neighbor and mentor, Thomas Jefferson.
In this week's "Time Off," Kimberly McBroom takes us to Ash-Lawn Highland for a tour of Monroe's home and an inside look into his life.

(( This 535- acre estate still has the atmosphere of a working plantation...
But these days it's tourists, not slaves, who walk across the property known as Ash- Lawn Highland.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 12:31:04]

[RUNS= :09]


James Monroe bought the property in 17-93.
He and his wife didn't move into the home until 17-99-- and for the next quarter century, it was their private residence throughout Monroe's political career.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT 11:47:44]

((JAMES WOOTTON/CURATOR: EVERYTHING THAT YOU SEE OF THE WHITE PORTION OF THE HOUSE TODAY WAS THE ORIGINAL JAMES MONROE HOME. AROUND 1840 THERE WAS A FIRE IN THE EASTERN WING OF THE HOME-- A PART THAT'S TO MY LEFT. AS A RESULT OF THAT FIRE, THE HOME WAS DAMAGED-- AND IN THE 1880S WAS RE-BUILT AS THE YELLOW HOUSE THAT WE SEE TODAY.))
[RUNS= :20]


Monroe held more major offices than any other President.
And although the Monroe Doctrine was the foundation of America's foreign policy, James Monroe never reached the historic status of neighbor and mentor, Thomas Jefferson.
But it was this proximity of this property to Monticello that prompted Monroe to make it his home.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT standup here 12:31:04]

((KIMBERLY MCBROOM/NEWS 7: AS YOU CAN SEEK, MONROE'S HOME WAS MUCH MORE MODEST THAN THOMAS JEFFERSON'S NEARBY MANSION, MONTICELLO. THE TWO WERE FREQUENT VISITORS TO EACH OTHER'S HOMES BY WAY OF A FARM ROAD CONNECTING THE TWO PROPERTIES.))

Ash-Lawn Highland was considered a middle class farmhouse, and it's that image that perhaps makes it more comfortable for visitors.

((JAMES WOOTTON/CURATOR: ASH LAWN HIGHLAND, ON THE OTHER HAND BEING THE MORE INTIMATE SCALE, MORE COMFORTABLE SCALE, SURPRISES ME SOMETIMES WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE SAY, "GOSH, THIS IS JUST LIKE SOMEBODY'S HOUSE. I COULD IMAGINE LIVING IN THIS HOME.))
[RUNS= :12]


The smokehouse and guest quarters are also original structures...
And this white oak tree has stood the test of time...it was standing when Monroe lived here.
(///// SOT /////)

((JAMES WOOTTON/CURATOR: THE ONE RE- CONSTRUCTED OUTBUILDING HERE, IS THE SLAVE QUARTERS. THE QUARTER WAS USED BY THE HOUSE SERVANTS, THE PEOPLE WHO HAD THE MOST IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO THE MONROES, AS WELL AS THOSE WHO WERE THE MOST READILY SEEN BY VISITORS TO THE MONROES.))
[RUNS= :15]


Visitors who come out to Ash- Lawn Highland are offered more than a glimpse into the former President's life.... a variety of annual events keeps the plantation lively.
The next big one is the Summer Performing Arts Festival, coming up in mid- June.

Elected as a Democrat four years ago, Roanoke City Council member Carroll Swain is running as an Independent this Spring.
