An educator and life-long learner, I enjoy learning about Southern history. My husband and I recently visited Monticello for the first time since 1970. We wanted to tour the second and third floors and were not disappointed! We were intrigued by the desk in the Madison room.

I am interested in knowing more about the writing desk in the North Octagonal/Madison Room. What are the primary and secondary woods? What is the provenance of the piece?
