Thomas Jefferson's Monticello

  • Ashleigh at Lansdowne 44124 Woodridge Parkway Leesburg, VA, 20176 United States (map)

Monticello was the home of Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence and third president of the United States of America. The revolutionary ideas of this man of the Enlightenment were instrumental in the creation of the United States. His home in Charlottesville, Virginia is an architectural icon, with its neoclassical design drafted by Jefferson himself, but Monticello was also a working plantation and the home to hundreds of enslaved people. The Founding Father who wrote “all men are created equal” was also a lifelong slave owner. Join us to get a glimpse of life on Jefferson's "little mountain." This is a live interactive digital presentation.
