I’ve had to do research on Thomas Jefferson this year as part of my course work and I was delighted to find this website, where you can explore Jefferson’s home Monticello.
There are four sections to the site:
First-Floor Tour – here you can take a room by room tour of the first-floor of Jefferson’s home. Pick the room you want to visit, and you’ll learn all about that room, what Jefferson did there, and how it was furnished. You can travel to the other room by using the menu on the right side of the page. This section whets my appetite for the next section!
Monticello Explorer – here you can visit Monticello in 3-D! This section will require you to have the flash player installed and is well worth it. This section could also be a standalone site based on its content. Here you can watch videos, learn about domestic life at Monticello, and even explore the gardens.
Monticello FAQ – here you’ll discover the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Monticello.
Image Galleries – I love stopping by the image gallery. Here you’ll find photos of the interior and exterior of Monticello, as well as, aerial photographs, drawings and models, and even images of the necessary things like the cook’s room and beer cellar in Dependencies. Check this spot out for great pictures!
This is a fantastic look into the place where Thomas Jefferson called home.
