Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest on Flickr

Steve Tatum, Visual Resources Curator at Virginia Tech, has taken some beautiful and instructional images of Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest, the president’s personal retreat near Forest, VA, and has uploaded them on Flickr. The estate, begun 1805 or 1806, is being extensively restored in the same order that Jefferson built it. These photos show the states of restoration in November 2008 and one year later in November 2009.

These images can be downloaded for instructional use–Poplar Forest welcomes any and all publicity (note that permission from Poplar Forest is required to publish them).
