March 1912 calendar Montpelier, Home of Madison "He was not the sort of hero for whom the people throw up their caps and shout themselves hoarse; but his work was of a kind that will long be powerful for good in the world." - John Fiske. MONTPELIER is situated in Orange County, Virginia, fifty miles northwest of Richmond. In Madison's day it was an estate of 1800 acres of beautiful rolling country. The original home at Montpelier, which was built by Madison's father, was a square structure of two stories and was the first brick house built in Orange County. In 1809 important additions were made to the house, the architect being William Thornton, whose plans for the Capitol at Washington were the first to be accepted. Architecturally an ideal Colonial mansion was made of the old brick house. A Series of Twelve Little Journeys to the Birthplaces and Home of Famous Americans. Cecelia Holmes, Rush Center, Kans.
