Jefferson’s Monticello sits on a hill overlooking the town and the university campus.
The nephew of Commodore Uriah Levy purchased Monticello soon after the Civil Way. It was in very bad shape and Levy restored the property to its original glory. Thanks to him we can still enjoy it today.
Promenades extend like arms from the main building, providing walkways with beautiful views of the valleys beneath. Underneath the promenades the utility operations are hidden, including the food preparation, storage, et cetera. The wine cellar is located beneath the columned entrance.
