Here are a few more photographs from Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest Retreat. The first is a front view of the octagonal structure, the second the rear or south portico and the third, one of the wing extensions that was under renovation when we visited but, is now complete. The wing extension provided storage, a kitchen, smokehouse and laundry. Enjoy.
I have an intense interest in Thomas Jefferson and add new reading material regularly to my personal library that includes a rather large section devoted solely to him. I am enamored by his gardens, his design aesthetic and his point of view. Over the course of the year, I hope to share with you many bits and pieces of his life that extended well beyond the confines of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
This is my fourth submission for Window Views and Doors Too . Please join in this fab meme hosted by the lovely Mary Tomaselli on Wednesday/Thursday.
