Significance: Montpelier is a National Historic Landmark as a distinguished example of a late Georgian, five-part plantation house with exceptionally fine interior detailing. Montpelier is also of significance as the primary homeplace of the Snowden family who received the original land grant for this area, first settling here ca. 1690. Through their iron works, and later their textile mills, the Snowden family developed and dominated the local economy for well over a century.
