Discussion Poplar Forest Commentary

"Thomas Jefferson and his wife, Martha, inherited the plantation known as Poplar Forest from her father in 1773. Theworking tobacco farm of 4,812 acres eventually provided Jefferson with a significant portion of his cash income. Theplantation also offered the perfect site for his most personal architectural achievement -- a unique octagonal house set withinan elaborately designed landscape. In this meticulously planned retreat he had the seclusion to pursue his passion forreading, writing, studying, and gardening."
