Everything that’s present in there can be viewed, its definitely a treat for people who know their history, those who want to educate themselves or those who simply want to see for themselves where one of the most well known figures of this country used to reside. The best part is, you don’t even have to go to Monticello. Following this direct Google Maps link will take you straight to his residence. [Image via Gizmodo]
