Discover Monticello - Virtual Tour

At just 26 years old, future President Thomas Jefferson inherited a plantation in rural Virginia. An architecture enthusiast, Jefferson himself devised a combination of Neoclassical and Palladian architecture for the estate that would come to be known as Monticello. It is now a National Historic Landmark, and, along with the University of Virginia--which was also one of Jeffersons designs--a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If Monticello looks familiar to you, its probably because its on the reserve side of the nickel.

Discover Mount Vernon - Virtual Tour

Mount Vernon began as a one-and-a-half story home built by George Washingtons father, Augustine, in 1734. It went on to become the plantation of George and Martha Washington, the first President and First Lady of the United States of America. The architectural style of the home is described as loose Palladian, which is a European style inspired by Ancient Greek and Roman structures. Mount Vernon was expanded twice during George Washingtons lifetime, in the late 1750s and in the 1770s, and it was his home until his death in 1799. In 1858, the Mount Vernon Ladies Association acquired the historic home and saved it from ruin by restoring it. Click the link below to begin your virtual tour.
