Original View of Jefferson's Poplar Forest

This is a view of what Jefferson’s Poplar Forest plantation looked like around 1820. It is by the watercolor artist Diane Johnson and shows the octagonal house as it is restored today along with the “office wing” to the East. You can see the octagonal privies at each extreme end of the house near hills designed into the landscape.  As in Monticello, there is a large circular drive around the house so that carriages of visitors can see the house from all angles as they approach the house.
