We've all had moments where we lose track of what day it is. In the summer of 1776, Thomas Jefferson was no exception.
Today we at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello are saddened to announce the recent passing of two former leaders, Brenton S. Halsey and Alice Warner Handy. Both were key players in the Foundation's and Monticello's history, contributing immensely to its stability and growth.
The Thomas Jefferson Foundation has restored portions of the Upper and Lower Grove to resemble Jefferson’s landscaping vision more closely.
For decades Mr. Rubera—who joined us in person as often as he could—and his cake were a mainstay at our Founder’s Day ceremony. It is with a heavy heart that this year will not hold the same tradition, as Mr. Rubera recently passed away.
In 1762, Thomas Jefferson described Christmas as the “day of greatest mirth and jollity.” During this special holiday season, share the genius of Jefferson and Monticello with the people on your gift list! Monticello’s online Shop has a gift for every age, style, and budget.
It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of former Thomas Jefferson Foundation Trustee and Board Chairman, Thomas A. Saunders III.
