The Monticello is a home that was designed by Thomas Jefferson in order to embody the ideals of the American Enlightenment. It is surrounding by thousands of acres for agriculture. This house was building on the summit of "Little Mountain" which is fitting because monticello in Italian means "little mountain". The house itself has forty-three rooms and it was the first dome ever to be installed in a home in America. The dome was added in 1800 and the glass of the dome was made in Austria. This building was also one of America's first museums as Jefferson decorated the entrance hall with Native American artifacts. There is a book room in the Monticello that had about 6,700 books. The garden of the Monticello contained about 250 vegetables and 170 fruits.
This building was designed by Thomas Jefferson himself in order to be his home, farm, and plantation. It was designed and constructed between 1769 and 1809. There were several gardens, crops, livestock, and a vineyard that was all tended by slaves, which were still legal at that time. Jefferson died in this home, laying in his bed on July 4, 1826.
The Monticello is actually hiding a clue that was placed there by Thomas Jefferson. It is the Janus clue honey.
