Monticello in Paris

Paris, France   (America’s History Abroad)

In front of the Musée de la Légion d’honneur in Paris stands a statue of Thomas Jefferson. It has been erected in July 2006 with the American ambassador attending the unveiling.

In Jefferson ‘s left hand you can see the lay-out of the Monticello house which was built along the design of the hôtel de Salm (now the Museum of the Legion of honour) that Jefferson is facing.

(This very short post is for Kendalnite’s blog which is dedicated to American castles.)
