Repair and Replacement of Interior Windows

Research & Collections

All of the windows that had been re-used by the duPonts in their new additions were collected, repaired, and then replaced in their original locations.


Nelly Madison's Best Room

Nelly "Mother" Madison continued to live with her son and daughter-in-law at Montpelier until her death in 1829. She generally resided in the south wing of the mansion, ate her meals separately, and kept her own house slaves. The closet in her Best Room features original Prussian blue paint and the only surviving ca. 1760s glass window panes from the original Madison Sr. home.
