Monticello

recommendation by ammie

Monticello is the former estate of Thomas Jefferson, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence, third President, and founder of the University of Virginia. The house, which Jefferson designed himself, is every bit has beautiful and photogenic as Mount Vernon is. One can see how Jefferson’s philosophies influenced the design. The grounds are just as beautiful and one can see why it attracts many visitors each year. A slice of American history from over 200 years ago.
