An estate of central Virginia southeast of Charlottesville. Designed by Thomas Jefferson, it was begun in 1770 and was his home for 56 years. Owned by other families from shortly after Jefferson's death until 1923, it is now a national shrine.
Jefferson had a great appreciation for Neoclassical architecture, especially Italian Renaissance designs, so it's no wonder that he designed his home, Monticello, using many of the classical architectural features.
With about 60% of the furnishings being Jefferson's original pieces, including over 150 paintings and other art objects, you're assured of a memorable visit at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.
When you visit Monticello, one of the first things that will be pointed out to you is the one-hand clock that hangs on the outside wall of the East entrance portico.
