Most visitors to University of Virginia visit the Rotunda which is a must-to-see. Apart from that I took a walk around university grounds including the area located north of main University Avenue.

I've seen a few charming, old buildings hidden behind picturesque fall trees:
1. Booker House;
2. Brooks Hall (the Anthropology Department) completed in 1877 in style completely different from the Jeffersonian tradition;
3. Madison Hall opened in 1905 for YMCA. It currently houses administrative offices, including those of the University president. It was named in honor of President James Madison, who succeeded Thomas Jefferson and became the second president of the University.
