Spend time as Jefferson did—in the home designed as his personal retreat. Read and relax in a historic setting, enjoy complimentary coffee and tea, explore our grounds or engage with special exhibits and vignettes at your own pace. And on Saturdays, join us for parlor talks led by experts on subjects related to Jefferson’s time.
