Very informative tour of the layout of the old campus and grounds. The Dome Room of the Rotunda is gorgeous and a must. The design of the professors and students housing is amazing...make sure to ask about Edgar Allen Poe.

Stopped by the university on a whim and so happy we did. The architecture and beauty were well worth the time. Get someone who knows the history - it's super interesting.

We heard information from my guy about the layout of the rotunda and side buildings. We also learned about the architects and how he complied with Thomas Jefferson’s plans.
