Jefferson had to have a nice place to invite his friends and serve them delicious food. His home in Charlottesville, called Monticello ("little mountain"), was known as one of the finest estates in Virginia. He designed his home himself and he included a series of rooms where he entertained guests. He also created a room just for his books and an office with a copy "machine." Some of his public rooms displayed things he had collected: Native American artifacts, fossils discovered by Lewis and Clark, and images of people he admired. Today you can visit Monticello, which is recognized as a national treasure.
