In December 2003, the Montpelier Foundation began a complete restoration of James Madison's home. The restoration was designed to return the house to the size, structure, and form that it had when Madison and his family lived there. The process involved removing alterations that were added after Madison's death in 1836, including taking off two large wings that had been added in the early 1900s.
