James Madison's home is on Spruce Street in the Society Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was here the future president lived with his new wife Dolley Madison from 1794 to 1797. Dolley Payne Todd was a 26 year old widow when she met the 43 year old Virginia Congressman via an introduction from mutual friend Aaron Burr. The couple was married on September 15, 1794 and moved into this home. In 1797 Madison briefly left public office to return to the family plantation, Montpelier, where he helped oversee new construction on the home. There is a plaque on the front of the house.
