Monticello does it every summer: Thomas Jefferson’s mountaintop home near Charlottesville provides a memorable place for fresh faces to become American citizens.
On Saturday, historic Chatham Manor in Stafford County will join the ranks of such select spots, hosting a naturalization ceremony.
At 10 a.m., the public is invited to watch as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services conducts the rite on Chatham’s front lawn overlooking Fredericksburg. It’s part of “Becoming Americans: Chatham Living History Weekend,” the National Park Service said.
