I'm an enthusiastic visitor eager to learn more about the house, the family and future plans.
Architecture, Gardening, History
I'm glad to see that Rachel Levy's grave is known and written about. Is she still buried at Monticello? While I was delighted to discover her and the history of the Levy family during a visit about 10 years ago, I was dismayed that at a recent visit two days ago, many of the docents were completely unaware of the grave's existence. One docent was able to tell us that the grave was on Mulberry Row, currently a construction site, and therefore (I guess) the reason why I was unable to find it. Nor did I see any plaque or written commemoration about the Levy family anywhere. The only mention of the Levy's was a single sentence at the end of the house tour, rather tepid and no mention of the grave. Do you know anything about the whereabouts of Rachel Levy's remains that you are able to share with me? Many thanks, I am very interested in Monticello, the history and the evolution of the place. It is definitely a work in progress!
