    Welcome to Charlottesville, Virginia! Affectionately referred to as C’ville or Hoo-Ville by locals, Charlottesville was formed in 1762 and named for Queen Charlotte, wife of then-reigning monarch King George III.

    Charlottesville is most famous for being the home of three presidents of the United States: James Madison, James Monroe, and Thomas Jefferson. Our walk today is going to focus mostly on Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States, Founding Father, and primary author of the Declaration of Independence. You’ll see a great deal of the city as it is today, while also travelling back in time to see Charlottesville as Jefferson saw it, and how his legacy impacted it over the years. Charlottesville was mostly spared during the Civil War, and today, it is a vibrant city tucked at the edge the Blue Ridge Mountains. The scenery and history combine to make it a perfect place to take a walking tour, so let’s get going!
