Join APT-DC for a social/networking event at Montalto* on Tuesday, September 19th. Generously hosted by Springpoint Structural, representatives of Monticello, and the University of Virginia, this event will feature a unique opportunity for after-hours access to this historic location. Drinks and light appetizers will be provided.
The event is intended for contractors and tradesworkers, architects and engineers, and academics and students in the central Virginia area who work and study in fields related to historic preservation. APT-DC members from anywhere in our geographic region (DC, MD, VA, West VA, Southern Delaware) are of course quite welcome to join! Beyond the opportunity to reconnect at the start of the fall season, we hope to gauge interest in organizing future APT events in Charlottesville, Richmond, and the surrounding regions.
*Montalto, or the “high mountain,” as Jefferson also called it, rises 410 feet above Monticello. Jefferson started negotiations for the land in 1771 to preserve the view from Monticello, and it was one of his first land acquisitions. “Repose,” the 11,000-square-foot house atop Montalto, is a 1908 American Country House imbued with a sense of retreat and possibility, and was restored by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in 2011.
