DADH professor Erin Kuykendall and students gather outside the rear entrance to President James Monroe's guest house at Highland, outside Charlottesville, Virginia. Dendrochronology,  archaeology and a reexamination of the documentary record have definitively concluded this building - long interpreted as a wing to Monroe's original home from 1799 - was actually built in 1818 by two enslaved carpenters, Peter Mallory and George, as separate guest quarters for visiting dignitaries during Monroe's Presidency #historichomes #virginiahistory #history #architecturalhistory #design #preservation #highland #presidentialhistory #interiors
