"Move-In" Day at Monticello


How did they install furniture on the third floor of Monticello? With restoration of the upper floors underway and not much historical evidence to go on, our Restoration and Curatorial teams were tasked with finding a solution around those narrow stairways. After lots of measuring, they decided that the best option was through the West Pediment window. A grand total of one sofa, one (non-Windsor) chair, two tables, one desk, four Windsor settees, and 25 Windsor chairs were moved through the “cuddy” window on the morning of June 26, 2014.
