Monticello VA Thomas Jefferson Estate

Monticello is a National Historic Landmark just outside Charlottesville, Virginia. It was the home and burial place of Thomas Jefferson, the principal author of the United States Declaration of Independence, 3rd President of the United States and founder of the University of Virginia.

The house, which Thomas Jefferson designed, was based on the neoclassical principles described in the books of the Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. It is situated on the summit of an 850′ peak in the Southwest Mountains. Its name means “Little Mountain.”

Monticello used to appear on the reverse side of the $2 bill, until it was replaced by an engraved modified reproduction of the Declaration of Independence.

Monticello, along with the nearby University of Virginia, also designed by Jefferson, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
