Abstract: This paper was presented at the 2021 Mid Atlantic Archaeology Conference. In 2019, the Montpelier Archaeology Department began excavations at the Overseer’s House. The site is located just a short walk from the Montpelier Visitor Center, next to Mount Pleasant, the original Montpelier homestead, and near the Madison family cemetery. The study is part of a larger effort to understand the main agricultural complex at Montpelier, called the Home Farm, which encapsulates a 70 acre area made up of the overseer’s house, a row of domestic quarters for people enslaved by the Madisons, a tobacco and wheat barn, and industrial sites such as a blacksmith shop.
