ven William Taylor Chapter members and two guests traveled to Montpelier, the home of Dolley and James Madison in Orange County on July 17. The members toured both the house and Claude Moore Hall which supports the educational mission of Montpelier to teach about the Constitution of the United States. Madison is often referred to as “The Father of the Constitution.” Claude Moore Hall, which was recently opened, houses classroom areas that include a recording studio to capture educational content, a sound booth for audio recording, reception space and an office for staff. The Virginia Daughters of the American Revolution funded the conference room there. Pictured in the conference room during the tour are, from left, Frances Towberman, the chapter’s chairman of the State Regent’s project at Montpelier; Gloria Mustian, Nancy Christin, Regent Merny Erby and Nancy Turner.
