Visit a space not available to tours! Monticello’s South Pavilion was the first building on Monticello mountain and the space where young Thomas and Martha Jefferson lived as a newly married couple in 1772. Join Diane Ehrenpreis, Monticello’s Assis­tant Curator of Decorative Arts (and unofficial History Detec­tive) as she shares new research that serves as the basis for our current interpretation of the South Pavilion. Ehrenpreis will speak on the decorative arts and social history, and what it would have been like to live in this environment as a young couple with an infant. Dessert bar and discussion after site visit. 6-7:30 pm, $45 per person (includes a $20 charitable gift).

Please note that the June 10 & 12 sessions have sold out.
