Blog Header - May 2, 2010

The gorgeous house in this header photo is Thomas Jefferson’s retreat and retirement home, Poplar Forest. It is a small-scale version of Monticello, complete with the octagonal main living area and single side wing. This almost unknown home is situated in Forest, Virginia, the town next to Lynchburg and it is a wonderful place to visit—especially on July 4th when they have a ton of events and demonstrations for all ages.

Poplar Forest is one of the things we really miss about the Lynchburg, Virginia, area.
