Jefferson Garden

The Jefferson bronze statue is so lifelike sympathetic students lend him a hat in winter.

 

This garden is located on the west side of the Chancellors Residence on Francis Quadrangle. Students and visitors now have an opportunity to sit among many of the flowers once found in Thomas Jefferson's garden at Monticello, which include Columbine (Aquilegia canadensis), Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens), Virginia bluebells (Mertensia virginica), Carolina Allspice (Calycanthus florida) and Vitex (Vitex agnus). A bronze sculpture of Thomas Jefferson, as well as the original tombstone, a simple obelisk, which once sat next to Jefferson's grave, are also located in the garden.
