Day 5 THURSDAY
Today you will visit Thomas Jefferson
designed “Academical Village” at the University of Virginia,
architectural and academic heart of his community of scholars. The Rotunda
at the University of Virginia is the focal point of the academic village
modeled after the Pantheon in Rome. The buildings and landscapes are still
being used much as Jefferson intended. A guided walking tour of the Rotunda
and the Lawn will be presented for you by K. Edward Lay, the Cary D.
Langhorne Professor Emeritus of Architecture at the University of Virginia.
Next a visit to the University of Virginia’s Albert H. Small Declaration of
Independence Collection. At age 33, Thomas Jefferson, already an
accomplished writer, drafted this seminal document of American history.
Morning presentations close with commentary by Clay S. Jenkinson and a
chance to peruse some rare books and special manuscripts that Clay has hand
selected from the University of Virginia’s Special Collections. The
afternoon is all yours offering several options: Continue to explore the
University, visit Charlottesville with a walking tour and shopping, return
to Monticello or just relax at your hotel.
Dine tonight on French cuisine in downtown Charlottesville followed by
Clay's special presentation: ”Jefferson and the West”.
