Happy Birthday Jemmy!

Belle Grove Plantation Bed and Breakfast

Two hundred and sixty-two years ago,

Nelly Conway Madison gave birth to her first son,

James Madison at Belle Grove Plantation.

Today we are on our way to Montpelier to celebrate with a wreath lying at his grave site, a tour of the mansion with exhibitions in each room about the Constitution and a visit with “Mr. and Mrs. Madison”.

We are staying the night at one of our favorite bed and breakfasts in Virginia, Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast in Orange. We will be having dinner at the Elmwood at Sparks too! And it wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the James Madison Museum!
