|The drive leading up to the house is magical.|
This blog post is about a beautiful home designed by and lived in by one of our founding fathers, third president of the United States, Vice President, Governor of Virginia (I'll stop there) Thomas Jefferson.
|These doors are actually pine painted to look like mahogany. Trust me they are gorgeous!|
|In classic Jefferson and Palladium fashion, the house is actually an octagon. Jefferson was inspired by the classical architecture he saw in Europe and was completely self taught.|
|This guy follows me everywhere! Good thing he's so cute.|
|Mr. J. loved light, fresh air, and open windows. Something we have in common.|
|Yep, even the privy is eight sided.|
|The wine and beer cellar.|
|The "hall of offices" which were actually the kitchens and laundry room.|
|Poplar Forest is open daily from|
mid-March through December 30, and winter weekends for self-guided tours mid-January through mid-March. Admission is $16.00 for adults.
It is truly breath taking!
|Lunch as trio was wonderful.|
