schema:description"This unique collection of architectural plans, elevations, sections, and details of Monticello (the home of Thomas Jefferson in Albemarle County, Virginia) from the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), reveals the house's complex facade and details the relationship of individual floors and the fascinating array of architectural elements found throughout the house. Each drawing is accompanied by insightful commentary from William L. Beiswanger, Monticello's Robert H. Smith Director of Restoration. Jefferson began Monticello in 1768 at the age of twenty-five and continued altering his "essay in Architecture" until his death in 1826. This work outlines the changes Jefferson made to his residence, which evolved from six to twenty-one rooms."
