Montalto

The mountain that Thomas Jefferson named Montalto is a part of the Carters Mountain[1] range, and is today sometimes known as Brown's Mountain. It is located about three miles southeast of Charlottesville and south/southwest of Monticello, being separated from that mountain by the "Thoroughfare Gap." The elevation is 1,278 feet and it rises 410 feet above Monticello.
