The dome on Monticello is visible on the back of the US 5¢ coin. Two flights of very steep and narrow stairs lead to the room on Monticello’s third floor. The use of the Dome Room is not known with certainty; at times it served as a bedroom for a married grandson, as a storeroom, and probably as a playroom for the grandchildren.
