Nancy Drew 2011 Convention Clues #13

Nancy Drew Sleuths Visit Ash Lawn-Highland

Ash Lawn-Highland is the home of our late president James Monroe. It is located near Monticello, the home of president Thomas Jefferson. Members of the Nancy Drew Sleuths will be visiting the home during our convention in Charlottesville, VA.

In the Nancy Drew book #34, The Hidden Window Mystery, Nancy visits Ash Lawn-Highland. Nancy's cousin Susan says, "Let's go on now to James Monroe's home. You'll find it more simple, but the gardens have the most beautiful boxwood you've ever seen." (pg. 56, revision)

Here's a beautiful peacock on the grounds of Ash Lawn-Highland.
