South Wing restoration at Monticello

Monticello has begun an exciting new phase of restoration in the South Wing, where archaeologists and architectural historians are now excavating and peeling back layers of modern building fabric. The project will restore and interpret the cellar of the South Pavilion – the first building Thomas Jefferson constructed on the mountaintop – and, for the first time, a slave quarter where Sally Hemings lived.
You can be part of this when you visit Monticello in Charlottesville, Va.
