In honor of Thomas Jefferson’s 281st birthday, will you help us preserve and protect Monticello for generations to come?


Here at Monticello, we often say that every object tells a story. Today we highlight Jefferson family silver that has recently been installed in the Tea Room as part of a series of rotating exhibits. At first glance, would you think these items were at the center of a dramatic Revolutionary War flashpoint that took place at Monticello?

Hear the full story from our Curator of Arts and History, Emilie Johnson, and come see the exhibit at Monticello through the end of June!
