The Secret Quarters At Monticello

As part of a $35-million project to restore the Monticello to the floorplan it had when Thomas Jefferson lived there, archaeologists and some other restoration experts have been reconditioning the building’s south wing, declares Smithsonian Magazine.

Throughout the course of their work, they’ve discovered an area next to where the former president was believed to have slept, a hidden chamber. It’s tiny, windowless, and believed to have been built in 1809.

It may have been where Jefferson’s slave, Sally Hemings, slept. Now, if you’re a history buff, whether Jefferson actually fathered six children with Hemings is one of the most mysterious presidential mysteries.

But no matter what you choose to believe, visiting this famous landmark is definitely worth it.
