Did you know Thomas Jefferson made a sketch of the Hammond-Harwood House in 1783?

It’s true! Thomas Jefferson once called Palladio’s Four Books of Architecture his bible, so he recognized the design for Hammond-Harwood House to be based on Palladio’s Villa Pisani, and was inspired to make a sketch.

This tour delves into the fascinating architecture that inspired Thomas Jefferson to create modifications to his home Monticello. Visitors would have a chance to take a look at a copy of the Jefferson drawing of Hammond-Harwood House in the exhibition “Architect and Apprentice.”
