Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia, was the primary plantation of Thomas Jefferson, the third
President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson lived
here from 1770 until his death in 1826, designing, building, redesigning, and expanding the
home and elaborate gardens that are now owned by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation.
