Monticello Visits On the Upswing

After reading the very good news yesterday that visits to Monticello were up in 2006 (after an 8-year decline), I thought it appropriate to share some of my favorite postcards from the grounds of Jefferson's home. Enjoy!

Entrance to Monticello, 1905

The Superintendent's House, 1928 -- "where every Patriotic Visitor personally registers"

Monticello, VA. Home of Thos. Jefferson, 1905

Ruins of Jefferson's Nail Factory, 1920s. Thomas Jefferson: Philosopher, Artist, Statesman...and Nail Manufacturing Pioneer?

Jefferson's Tomb, 1920s. This one is dedicated to Rep. Keith Ellison.
