Rotunda U of Virginia Charlottesville April 2009
A moist spring day in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains on my way to connect with Zachariah Chappelear's family in Rappahannock County. Here is the rotunda that Thomas Jefferson designed as the center piece of the University of Virginia. I went up to the third floor that has a dome modeled after the Pantheon in Rome. At one time the library was here connected to student and teacher quarters.
