Monticello is the home of the author of the Declaration of Independence. A World Heritage Site, museum, research institute, and presidential library. This was the primary plantation of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States. He began designing and building Monticello at the age of 26 after inheriting land from his father. Jefferson designed the main house using neoclassical design principles and reworking the design through much of his presidency.
At Jefferson’s direction, he was buried on the grounds, in an area now designated as the Monticello Cemetery.
