1806 Octagon / Round

Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest

One of only two homes designed for his own use, Poplar Forest was an important part of Thomas Jefferson's life: a private retreat situated far from public scrutiny and the demands on his time. Jefferson sojourned to Poplar Forest regularly in his retirement, between the ages of 66-80, to find rest and leisure, rekindle his creativity and spend time with his grandchildren. He designed the perfectly octagonal house at Poplar Forest during his second term as President of the United States.
