"Jefferson's Home" Thomas Jefferson Home Tip by shrimp56


You can only enter the house on a docent-led tour and no pictures are permitted. They have the "move them on through" down to a science -- some guides are better than others. But it is a house you will never forget.
Thomas Jefferson was the 3rd president of the United States, serving from 1801-1809. He retired to Monticello in 1809 where he pursued his many interests, from science to literature, to gardening. He died on July 4, 1826 -- the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Indepence which he had written.
