Monticello

Poplar Forest Day 4: The highlight of today was most definitely our visit to Monticello. I have never been there and I was thoroughly impressed – more so than I thought I would be.  Of course, the best part about being in a certain group are the special parts of the tour that most people don’t see.  The architectural restoration crew talked to us and their techniques in such things as fixing a bow in the stone wall, paint analysis, deciding on the roof structure, etc.  Granted, house tours are always a nice thing but I prefer more architecturally centered tour.  Anyway, for now, I’ll just post a few Monticello picures.

View from the dome room!

We were allowed in the dome room! (Turn your head for now _ I can’t figure out wordpress.) (The third floor. It is amazing and really hard to capture in a picture.  I’ll post more soon.)

locks!

Ever see the inside of a lock? We learned about door locks!

More to come.
