The Charlottesville region is not only known for its unique beauty and vibrant culture, buts it’s also a big part of Virginia’s nickname as the “Mother of Presidents”. Three of the eight Presidents born in Virginia were born in this area and each left behind an opportunity for future generations to take a glimpse into their legacy of American heritage.
