A museum dedicated to the life work and legacy of the 5th President of the United States, James Monroe.

The James Monroe Museum and Memorial Library is a historic museum that has been open since 1927. It is located on one of James Monroe's actual properties, and it was formally used as his law office. The building was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966. James Monroe worked in more public service jobs than anyone who has been the chief executive of our country. He was a farmer, lawyer, soldier, and statesman. The museum holds the largest collection of James Monroe's personal artifacts and those that are related to his career. You can view his sword with the blade that was made in France and the hilt and grip that was made in the Colonies. His bayonet, which is a short blade for the end of his rifle for close contact battle can be seen here, as well. The museum has the actual desk where The Monroe Doctrine was written. The desk was purchased in Paris when James Monroe was the Ambassador to France. The museum and its contents tell of the life, everyday existence, and impact that the Monroe family had on our country's early history. The museum is open from 10 am - 5 pm from Monday - Saturday and on Sunday from 1 pm - 5 pm. Entrance is $7 for adults and $3 for children (discounts available).
