When you visit Charlottesville you will want to get a feel for the history and feel of Jefferson’s Virginia.
What better way that to visit and eat at Michie Tavern (A Virginia Historic Landmark)?
Originally built in Western Albemarle, this 1784 home was moved within minutes of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello.
You can enjoy a delicious southern meal, tour the original Tavern, and, on a cold day, warm by the fire! There is a lot to see and you can even learn 18th-century dances on your tour. There is a General Store and everyone wears traditional clothing.
The Meadow Run Grist Mill (ca. 1797) is a sight to see. This is where the general store is offering an old mercantile atmosphere.
The Tavern Gift Shop offers a wide selection of historic reproductions and is fun for kids and adults, too!
