Monticello #virginiapioneersnet #vagenealogy


MonticelloMonticello was the beloved home of Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence and founder of the University of Virginia. Jefferson spent sixty years planning this home to suit his needs. It is situated atop a
mountain overlooking a spectacular view of the University. Vegetable and flower gardens were strategically planted along the hillside, and the Jefferson cemetery 
is located half-way up the mountain. Many of his personal inventions are 
displayed inside the home.
