Part of Monticello's In the Course of Human Events Podcast Series
We have several accounts from visitors to Monticello during Jefferson’s lifetime who were surprised and delighted by their time on the mountaintop. Yet… not everyone had such a pleasant experience. Case in point: Anna Maria Thornton’s visit in 1802.
Learn more about Thornton’s harrowing trek up to the mountain (on foot, at night, in a storm) and the disappointing conditions she found when she arrived in our newest podcast, featuring Monticello Guides Danna Kelley, Melanie Bowyer, and Justin Bates!
