Montpelier House Museum

About the Montpelier House Museum

Montpelier Mansion was built in the 1780s as a plantation for agriculture and iron production. Now a historic landmark, it preserves the histories of the free and enslaved residents who lived there. The plantation house was home to four generations of Snowdens, as well as enslaved individuals documented to have lived here like Nance and Catte Creek, and Ben, a blacksmith.
