Carrying a Mystery
Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States. His primary home before he moved to the White House in 1801 was the famous Monticello plantation located in Virginia, more precisely in Charlottesville. The construction of the Monticello estate began 1768 and today this property is considered a national landmark whose Italian name translates into “Little Mountain.”
The Monticello estate has earned such an important place in US history that you can find the picture of the main house engraved on the back of the US nickel. Despite all the available documentation about the property, the Monticello plantation carried a mystery that was discovered only recently.
