The Homes & Gardens of Charlottesville

Thomas Jefferson considered the founding of UVA to be among his greatest accomplishments—high praise from this beloved statesman and founding father. The Garden Club of Virginia restored UVA’s Pavilion Gardens, as well as the surrounding serpentine walls that were part of Jefferson’s Academical Village. The West Gardens were rebuilt between 1947 and 1953, while members turned their attention to the East Lawn from 1960 to 1965.
