Monticello

Monticello

Photo by George Gray

We took in the homes of a few presidents and founders of our government.  Of course Jefferson was a must since he was such an avid gardener and horticulturalist. He had planted hundreds of species on the grounds during the course of his lifetime.  The foundation that is in charge of restoring Monticello is able to keep it all accurate because Jefferson took such copious notes.

  1. Very impressive! I don’t think I’ve ever seen an actual photograph of Monticello before.
