jefferson’s vacation home
ever heard of it? i hadn’t and am a little bit embarrassed. just over 1 hour away from mr. jefferson’s well-known monticello is his european style villa, poplar forest.
i’ve mentioned before that charlie and i are semi-nerds who enjoy historical site tours on weekends. poplar forest is really, very cool. the non-profit who purchased the property are in the process of renovating and digging through the dirt and mud figuring out how jefferson’s beloved retreat was landscaped. i think this is the way to see historical homes – in the midst of renovations.
well worth the trip.
